My OD Intervention Project—Task 3
This course has major assignments that will be due in Weeks 3 and 5. It will take more than a week’s effort to adequately complete them. Plan time to start the research and other work for those assignments earlier than the week in which they are due.
Because this is the Week 3 portion of the course project, it is considered a major assignment worth a substantial amount of points. As part of your review of the assignment instructions, review the expanded grading rubric available as a link at the bottom of the basic rubric below.
Last week, you prepared a report indicating the entry process into your real or hypothetical organization. (WALMART)
This week:
Prepare a report on the contracting process to include:
· Statement of the problem, including the appropriate intervention level (individual or group).
· Implications of the problem for the organization.
· Methodology or approach to the OD engagement:
o Data-gathering proposal, including what data is to be gathered and from whom.
o Tools and techniques proposed for use to undertake the project, reasons to choose those tools and techniques, and an explanation of how the tools and techniques are appropriate for the level of the problem identified.
· Outcomes the organization should anticipate as a result of the intervention.
· Timetable for the overall engagement, with milestones listed for intermediate stages, to include:
o When you will gather data
o When you will have meetings with management.
o When you will implement individual or team interventions. How will these interventions be completed? For example, how many meetings will you conduct? How long will the meetings last? How long will the intervention last?
o When you expect the intervention to be completed.
