Describe the role of organizational development in contemporary organizations Describe the role of organizational development in contemporary organizations Describe the role of organizational development in contemporary organizations   Describe the role of organizational development in contemporary organizations. How does organizational development help organizations prepare for or implement change? Provide an example from your organization.   Organizational Development Caruso (2021) stares that there are many definitions of organizational development, but the most common is it is described as a process that helps prepare organizations for change. It is intended to cause a shift in beliefs, values, and attitudes that help companies keep up with fast-paced technologies and environments (Caruso, 2021). Organizational development can help with change by providing products or services, introducing new technologies, and helping to remodel the organizations culture (Ionescu & Bolcas, 2018). Organizational development has increasing internal capabilities to help the organization to respond to changes in the environment, and to help put the people in the middle of the change process (Ionescu & Bolcas, 2018). This is often considered a long-term process that is carried out by leadership and focuses on learning and problem-solving aspects with members of the organization (Ionescu & Bolcas, 2018). It may often times be viewed as a planned process for change in the culture (Ionescu & Bolcas, 2018). With in my organization I feel that we often do not follow these steps. Often times upper leadership comes up with a new process and puts it out there for people to follow. Many times this is completed without explanation as to the reasoning behind the new process. Managers are just told to go out and implement the change without really getting any feedback as to how the change will affect the company. This is one reason I chose to pursue my masters in leadership to help me better understand how we can effectively drive change in the organization. Unread Replies to Erica Richmond My interpretation of the video is that when an organization puts the people first, all the other elements (such as financial benefits) will fall into place. Furthermore, inclusive leadership lays the foundation for a positive, engaging, and team effort to implement change within an organization successfully. The video intrigued my curiosity, which led to further research regarding inclusive leadership and includes the following six traits: Visible commitment Humility Awareness of bias Curiosity about others Cultural intelligence Effective collaboration “Leaders who consciously practice inclusive leadership and actively develop their capability will see the results in the superior performance of their diverse teams” (Bourke et al., 2019, pg. 5).   Click here to ORDER an A++ paper from our Verified MASTERS and DOCTORATE WRITERS: Describe the role of organizational development in contemporary organizations MG Martin Giuffre replied toErica Richmond Oct 11, 2021, 9:47 PM(edited) Unread Replies to Erica Richmond Dr. E The speaker shared important principles and vital elements related to organizational change. As he mentioned, organizations constantly have to adapt due to the different environmental forces that drive Organizational Development (Hartzell, 2021). In the student personal experience with the current organization, the resistance to change is an element that a sector of the stakeholders is showing, the leadership response has not been effective, and it has the superficial approach, which results in them going back to old ways to operate as soon as the crisis is “over” (Hemerling, 2016). The speaker describes the five principles that aim to put people first (Hemerling, 2016). By enabling and empowering people to succeed, the transformation experience becomes a positive event (Hemerling, 2016). In conclusion, as the speaker describes, if the transformational process is implemented in the right way by putting people first, it will be a positive and productive process that would benefit the whole organization (Hemerling, 2016).   References:   Hartzell, S.

He discussed self-transformation being positive and empowering and compared that with the always evolving organizational change which creates reluctance amongst individuals. He states that change is hard especially when imposed upon and frequently done in quickly, in “crisis” mode. Changes made during crisis are often not sustainable. He states to have a positive change experience people need to be put first. There are 5 must haves in order to be an organization that puts people first which include, inspire the team, be fully engaged in the change, provide the necessary tools, continuous learning culture, and an inclusive leadership team with a strong vision (TED Conferences, 2016). I think there were quite a few valuable points made during Jim Hemerling’s discussion specifically on putting people first. I think putting people first is such a critical component to many of the aspects of the organizational development. Putting people first helps with the individual’s performance and therefore drive results. Reference TED Conferences.

Then we are surprised to see them lose excitement, are not engaged, and then resign. We need to inspire them with a deep sense of purpose, provide them with the skills they need to succeed and instill a culture of continuous learning (Hemerling, 2016). This will help to retain staff, make them more engaged and empowered to learn for the betterment of themselves and the organization.

I agree and can relate that change is hard and I feel like organizations often perform layoffs often, which makes it more stressful in today’s working world (Hemmerling, 2016). As quoted by Tasler (2017) “Change is hard in the same way that it’s hard to finish a marathon. Yes, it requires significant effort. But the fact that it requires effort doesn’t negate the fact that most people who commit to a change initiative will eventually succeed”. The 5 imperatives that Jim Hemmerling refers to are 1) Inspire through purpose: need to connect deeper in purpose; 2) Go all in: example used was to win, you need to go all in and look at initiatives and investments for growth; 3) enable people with capabilities to need succeed for transformation and beyond; 4) Instill culture of continuous learning; and 5) Is specifically for leadership, leadership needs to have a vision and clear road map, hold people accountable for results, and be directive and inclusive. The recap is that inclusive leadership is critical for putting people first. Organizations are always transforming, and it does not need to be exhausting but the essential key is to put people first (Hemmerling, 2016)! These are great points to take away and evaluate in our working present and future roles as leaders. Order Now
