A Collaborative Approach to Organizational Development & Tips for Using It in Your Organization


Session Description

Dr. Sigle will report on an organizational development project at National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) in Boulder, with a focus on the functions that support the scientific mission of the center.  In particular, he will explore the role that enhanced social capital played in the success of the project.  In addition to that useful outcome, Dr. Sigle’s use of Participative Action Research illustrates how this tool can be used by HR professionals who are seeking to create positive change in their organizations.
