Not quite L&D, not quite HR, OD sits somewhere in between (or perhaps above?) the two. But what does ‘organisation development’ actually mean, and what skills do you need to do the job effectively?

This week on the GoodPractice podcast, Ross Dickie and Ross Garner are joined by return guests Julie Drybrough and David D’Souza to discuss:

In this episode we discuss

  • How OD differs from L&D and HR
  • The skills of a successful OD practitioner
  • The extent to which the name ‘organisation development’ is about internal branding

Show notes

The book Ross Dickie mentioned is Invisible Women: Exposing Data Bias in a World Designed for Men by Caroline Criado Perez.

Criado Perez was also interviewed in a recent episode of the podcast 99% Invisible, which you can find at
