Depth of Field: Lenses on Organization Development
Friday, November 2, 2001
8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. (EST)
Atlanta Marriott Hotel - Perimeter Center
Atlanta, Georgia USA

Any Organization Development practitioner will tell you that no matter the
situation, there is always more than one approach that can be used to
address business challenges. Consider these approaches to be lenses that
provide a specific depth of field to looking at an organization. Have you
ever wondered what lens is best, why, or when it should be used? Five
professional Human Resources (HR) & Organizational Development (OD)
organizations: ASTD, IHRIM, OCA, SHRM, and SCOE have collaborated for the
first time to bring together experts on different lenses that experienced
OD practitioners use. The program is designed to be an engaging learning
experience for the novice and experienced professional.

What You Can Expect:
Using a realistic case study, you'll have the opportunity to learn through
the experiences and presentations of experts, case analysis, interactive
sharing and exchange of best practices of all attendees, and other learning
constructs throughout the day.
