Special Session: The Essential Competencies for Internal and External OD Consultants: Present and Future.
Competencies essential for organization development consultants, internal and external, have evolved over 20 years, based on literature and feedback from nearly 2,000 practitioners and academics. Further research is being conducted to determine what competencies are essential for internal and external organization development consultants today and in five years. The research is based on the 17th revision of the Organization Development Professional Competencies List (Rothwell et al. 1997) and involves a literature search and input received during the 1997 Conference of the Academy of Human Resource Development. During an interactive session, participants will review the existing list in small groups, suggesting items to eliminate, reword, and add, along with a rationale. The list determined by the participants will be put on the Internet for further review and comment before publication. (Contains 15 references) (KC)
