Organisational development (OD) used to be long to the world of psychology. However in the last few years many HR and Learning & Development professionals have moved into OD roles. Our workplaces are also going through radical change with the next industrial revolution.
The OD (re) Design Conference explores current and future OD trends, tools and techniques to help you deliver to your business.
If you know your organisation will need to take a different approach to development in the future, then this is the event to attend.
For 2020 we are running a one day conference in both Wellington and Auckland, followed by an optional virtual session a week later.
The OD (re) Design Conference 2020 details are here!

Using Customer Journey Mapping as an OD tool
Learning measurement has been focused on using Kirkpatrick’s model. However in the future to design and measure learner engagement you need to know to know what your learners are experiencing at every stage of their learning journey. In this session you’ll find out how to use customer journey mapping for learning and hear a case study from Spark.
Presented by Jodie Armstrong-
Pyschometric tools -
With so many tools available, how do you know what can work best for which situation? What’s the difference in each tool? Where will testing go in the future? Come and hear what is available out there and how these might be used better for next generation OD.
Presented by Fiona Hancock, Added Insight.
Understanding and using positive pyschology principles
Positive pyschology is a newer field and something OD can use to design and influence development. You’ll hear how to use positive pyschology principles to create meaningful work and build positive work reflection for employees and leaders.
Presented by Dr Lixin Jiang, Lecturer IO Pyschology, Auckland University
Developing Learning Wisdom in the Fourth Age
You can put the best OD frameworks and programmes in place but if senior leaders and managers are not resilient to manage changing teams and priorities, OD initiatives can fail. This session will focus on how you can build learning wisdom in your organisations for resilience, collaboration and leadership.
Presented by Mel Rowsell, Founder, Wisdom at Work
More and more meetings are happening in the workplace, requiring significant investment and resources. Loss of meeting information and intellectual capital, poor meeting practices and inadequate recording and information retrieval mechanisms result in meeting group memory often being compromised and very expensive. So how can you use meeting intelligence in your organisation?
