Developing Your OD Practice (Cohort 2 - Day 2)

Within this programme we are seeking to support practitioners who are new to OD, and those who have found themselves with OD in their portfolio. The cohort will come together to learn, think and work together to understand the practice of OD more fully. 

This development programme began its life in the North East in 2013 and has been development since this time by Dr Maxine Craig. Maxine has a 35-year career working in and for the NHS, commencing her career as a nurse. She has worked in the field of OD since the mid 1990’s. She currently is a board member of the OD network for Europe . The programme is delivered by a talented faculty of OD practitioners working across a range of organisation and health and care systems in the North East. They bring a wealth of hands on experience to the learning. 

The programme runs over 3 days (with gaps between each day to facilitation assimilation into practice).  The programme outline is below however a hallmark of the programme is that it is delivered as an ‘OD intervention’ and the faculty will ensure that the group has the opportunity to shape the content of days 2 and 3 to ensuring it is fit for the group’s needs.
