Event Description

As part of an ongoing initiative we are releasing individual articles, every two weeks approx.

'OD Matters' is a special edition in celebration of 20 years of ODiN, the OD Innovation Network. 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. 

8th article in this edition

Perspectives on OD practice

On a related theme, Daniel Thornton critiques the widespread advocacy and adoption of so-called “best practice”, as a supposed route to superior organisational performance. As an approach that bears the stamp of scientific rationality, it seemingly offers universal, context-free truths and assured success. In What’s wrong with best practice in organisations? he argues that this smacks more of bad practice than best practice. Instead, he offers a way forward that he sees as being much more congruent with the complex reality of organisation.
