The OD Book Review SIG is built around the idea of an executive book summary. Each month a presenter introduces and helps us understand the key ideas from a recently-published book whose topic is relevant to Organization Development practitioners. It is not necessary to have read the book to participate; attendees are encouraged to join in the discussion based on personal experience. There will also be time to network with other OD professionals as well as stay current on the latest trends, concepts and models.
Second Wednesday of each month from 8:00-9:30am
