The Online Organization Development Certification Program (ODCP) is designed to help participants gain practical skills to advance in the field of Organization Development.  Participants earn the distinction as an Organization Development Certified Professional (ODCP). Through the Organizational Development Certification Program, participants learn how to apply the concepts of OD by using the Action Research Model and OD’s model for change to help clients identify needs and solve critical business challenges using a whole systems approach.

In each of the Organization Development Certification Program sessions, participants practice by using OD tools to learn how to develop a client relationship, gain senior leader buy-in, create contract criteria, identify data collection techniques, conduct feedback and action planning sessions, measure results, recognize change models, identify systems thinking and learning, improve organization systems, and integrate sustainable change processes into the culture for ongoing renewal.
