"After years of our Board’s attempt to develop a framework for decision-making, we enlisted assistance from the Center for Learning & Organizational Development.

As a result, the Board was able to create a clear mission that is instrumental to a much improved decision-making process.”
~Michael Henthorne

Organizational Development is a deliberately planned effort to increase an organization's capacity and efficiency, and enable the organization to achieve its strategic goals.

We are prepared to help you reach your organization's goals by offering:

  • Group facilitation
  • Organizational consultation
  • Change implementation
  • Meeting design and planning consultation

We have worked with colleagues from nearly every college and extension office at OSU to help build new programs, develop mission, vision and values, plan and facilitate retreats, assist with mergers of departments and colleges, and other activities.

We invite you to visit with us to discuss opportunities and solutions for you and your unit, support your desire to understand and shift work group dynamics, develop the full potential of your employees, and build and sustain a healthy and productive organization.
