AU Open Space Technology in Implementing System Change, November 17, 2012, 8:30 am-2:30 pm
for event invitation)
Dear Colleagues in OD,
OD is experiencing dramatic changes. We are in the midst of generational transition as the field’s pioneers retire. OD is now globalized, institutionalized, debated, reshaped, and … many of the field’s basic principles are widely embraced. New approaches to changing systems, informed by an increasing understanding of complexity in human systems, are gaining traction. In all of this, what are the implications for preparing a next generation to support change initiatives that serve our organizations, communities, and the people in them?
In partnership with Peggy Holman and Cohort 63 of the MSOD program, I invite you to join us for a day-long event to work with the question that introduces this letter. The event will use Open Space Technology. If you’re not familiar with the process, it supports groups of any size to self-organize around questions that matter to them in order to uncover and pursue breakthrough possibilities. (click here

Triple Impact Practitioners Program: Presented by Michael Broom, Ph.D. & Edie Seashore, M.A.
Based on the 15-credit course that more than 500 graduate students took at Johns Hopkins, with three important differences:
- Smaller class size
- Much more affordable tuition
- One-on-one telephone coaching as needed with Michael or Edie
The principles you will learn in this program have been used effectively to create and manage change in organizations of all types and sizes, including: business, the military, other government agencies, and non-profits. As practitioners, Edie and Michael have successfully facilitated change themselves for more than 80 combined years.
What sets this program apart is that you will learn, and then apply, key principles of this change technology on the same day! Mornings are spent on a key principle; afternoons are spent applying the principle to individual situations of participants in the program.
Another key difference is the personal commitment of your mentors to your success. Michael and Edie are available between sessions for one-on-one coaching to help you solve problems and further customize what you learn to what you’re dealing with.
Who This Program Is For:
The Triple Impact Practitioners Program is for anyone who manages or facilitates change in individuals and organizations. Our students have included:
- Management Consultants
- Organizational Development Consultants
- HR Executives
- Other Executives and Managers
Top (10) In-Person Intensives, with Online and Phone Sessions in Between
|This program is focused on maximum personal and professional development for practitioners, based on 24 years as a graduate seminar at Johns Hopkins and shorter versions at Georgetown, American, Pepperdine, Fielding and McGill Universities. As a private program, it is in its eighth year.
The program meets monthly ten times, from January through October. The first and last session are two days long; all other sessions are one day long. In between the intensives, the group meets and discusses material online to deepen skill development and develop a strong support network. Participants may have one-on-one phone sessions with Michael or Edie as needed.
AU MSOD Program
Offered by our top-ranked School of Public Affairs, the AU MSOD blends a rigorous academic curriculum with an experiential learning component. The MSOD classroom is a dynamic, challenging space, where students learn from scholar-practitioners, as well as from each other.
It takes about 18 months to complete the 11-course curriculum. To accommodate working professionals, most courses meet on AU's northwest DC campus for two three-day weekends a month apart. Students complete the curriculum as members of a cohort, which becomes a powerful base for current learning and future professional relationships. The coursework addresses foundations and skills essential to 21st century OD practice, and ends with a series of fieldwork activities. Beyond the residential “launch” of the cohort learning community, there are two residential sessions for intensive learning: use of self in professional practice, and international OD fieldwork. The International Residency takes place in Johannesburg, South Africa, and is one of the most innovative and powerful programs for learning about the cultural competence and consulting skills needed for international OD work. In addition, all students complete a supervised practicum for reflective practice of OD in a full-cycle client engagement.
Admissions is rolling. For more information about the AU MSOD, to learn about our top-tier MSOD faculty, or to apply for admission, visit american.edu/msod or contact (202) 885-6206. We look forward to meeting you at one of our information sessions or on a campus visit soon.
