Organization Development. Symposium.
This document contains four papers on organization development and human resources. "Identification of Key Predictors of Rapid Change Adaptation in a Service Organization" (Constantine Kontoghiorghes, Carol Hansen) reports on the results of an exploratory study, which suggests that rapid change adaptation will be more likely to occur in an organizational setting within which there is an emphasis on process and quality improvement, innovation, rapid technology assimilation, and internal customer focus. "Research and Theory Internationalization of Organization Development: Applying Action Research to Transnational Health Organizations" (Carol Pavlish) addresses the cultural competencies organizational development professionals need as they implement action research and work with transnational health organizations to construct a more socially just and healthy world order. "The Design and Development of an Instrument to Measure Organizational Efficacy" (James G. Bohn) discusses the development and testing of a new research tool, the Bohn Organizational Efficacy Scale, which can be used to assess the perceived ability of an organization to work together and persist regardless of obstacles. "The Relationship of Individualism and Collectivism to Perceptions of Interpersonal Trust in a Global Consulting Firm" (Ghazala Ovaice) reports on a study of the national cultural values of individualism and collectivism as they are reflected in managers and employees. The major implication is that the building of trust awareness in workplace relations varies among a multinational workforce. All four papers contain substantial bibliographies. (AJ)
