Organisational Design and Development Community of Practice - South (ODDCoPs)
Dr Penny Simpson, Principal Lecturer at Brighton Business School and Pam James, Organisational Development Business Partner at Southern Water collaborated on the launch of ODDCoPs in 2013.
The ODDCoPs network provides a local learning and networking opportunity for organisational development practitioners, academics and consultants. The group aims to share knowledge, experience and best practice. Topics of meetings have included organisation design, strengths based organisations, change failure rates and change strategy planning. We have also had presentations, insights and discussion on a number of in-depth organisational case studies.
The network is now 75 strong with individuals from the public, private and voluntary sectors - making for richness of discussion. Approximately 15-20 members of the network attend each meeting, held every two months, with time for discussion of topics in both practice and theory and networking.
If you are interested in attending ODDCoPs events, please contact Penny Simpson, P.A.V.Simpson@brighton.ac.uk, or Pam James, firstname.lastname@example.org.
