'OD Matters' is a special edition in celebration of 20 years of ODiN, the OD Innovation Network
On 21 June 2019, the OD Innovation Network (ODiN) celebrated their 20th anniversary. Chris Rodgers traces the history and process of ODiN’s evolution, and how AMED and ODiN have collaborated creatively to publish this special bumper edition to mark the occasion. He then provides an overview of the 13 other articles, and honours some of the recent publications of ODiN Members, several of whom are also Members of the AMED network.

Alison Donaldson gives voice to her own experience of seeking to be heard – and of helping the voices of others to be heard. In Voice Matters: a personal story about learning to speak and listen in groups, she charts her path towards the finding of her own voice and the development of what she calls “conversational practice”. She argues that it’s in seeking to enhance the quality of one’s own and others’ participation in the everyday conversational life of organisation that the route to more meaningful – and potentially more successful – organisational performance can be found. Both Alison’s and Ajoy’s stories highlight the impact that power relations have on the nature and functioning of organisation, and on the outcomes that emerge.
