Richard Hale, Carolyn Norgate & James Traeger (2018): From nurturing the H in HR to developing the D in OD – systemic benefits where action learning and organisational development combine, Action Learning: Research and Practice

The authors review the Organisational Development and Design (OD&D) capability building programmes they have facilitated in the UK Civil Service and consider the learning and impact which they have had at an individual and organisational level. These programmes have been delivered to over 350 professional civil servants across a broad range of business functions, ministries, departments and agencies. This paper builds on the article published in entitled ‘Nurturing the H in HR’ (Hale, R. and Saville, M. 2014. “Nurturing the H in HR: Using Action Learning to Build Organisation Development Capability in the UK Civil Service.” Action Learning: Research and Practice 11 (3): 333– 351).

Much information exists in the public domain regarding the trends in learning that are impacting organisations of all sizes and in all sectors, not to mention the challenges that these bring to tertiary institutions as well, in terms of both course design and delivery. The massive explosion in technology, both from an application as well as from an enabler perspective are impacting the ways in which people engage within learning and education and respond to the varied opportunities that have now arisen. This represents challenges for organisations not engaged in the process and for those individuals who do not wish to take responsibility for their own learning. On the other hand, it represents opportunities for those organisations seeking a better return on their training investment dollars, and those individuals who recognise the benefit of active engagement with the training and development process.

Sydney - Next Public Cohort Scheduled for February 2016

In July 2015, we successfully launched the first of our Action Learning Question Cross-Organisational Cohort programs which has included representatives from both the not-for-profit sector as well as the commercial sector. The cross-blending of organisations from these sectors has provided participants with valuable insights, as well as beneficial input to the challenges that each participant brought to the program. Cross-over discussions and analysis between non-profit and commercial organisations on challenging organisational issues appears to be one of the strong features of this format. Additionally the ability of participants to learn from each other, has underpinned valuable leadership development in the process of addressing these challenges....
