Postgraduate Diploma in Organization Development(Weekend)


Organizational Development (OD), as a field, has gained prominence as it provides practical solutions for organizations to deal with or cope with the rapidly changing environment facing them. Economic crisis, technological advancement, market changes, competition, technical innovation, social and political pressures and the need to increase the effectiveness of organisations and other drivers require organisations to change. Under the current Public Service Reform Programme, structures, systems, procedures, in Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) have been constantly changing and are bound to continue changing. Private sector organisations are also constantly changing their structures, introducing new products and coming up with innovative ways of conducting their operations. All the above developments have created a training need for staff who both understand and can contribute to organisational change and development. A course in OD is well suited to address the above challenges.
