the process and practice of organizational development | BUS 370 Organizational Development | Ashford University


Prior to beginning work on this discussion forum, carefully review Chapters 4, 5, and 6 in the course textbook.

As a participant in organizational development, it is important to understand the methods for developing a successful change intervention. Having properly gathered and vetted data takes time and planning. Once the data is obtained and analyzed, the doing phase begins. The doing phase is heavily involved and requires consistent intervention. Once the doing phase is completed, the checking stage begins. The checking stage determines the success of the intervention and the sustainability of the change.

For this discussion, you are to comprehensively define and describe each phase of action research. Using the course textbook as the resource, clearly review each phase including the various models, theorists, and templates used during the process.

Pick one action phase and defend its importance to the other two phases and the overall intervention during a change process. Use the University Library to research your choice and support your position. You may want to use the University of Arizona Global Campus Library Quick ‘n’ Dirty (Links to an external site.) tutorial to get started. Include a minimum of two sources from the Library as well as the course textbook to support your work.

Guided Response: Your initial post must be specific and significant. The initial post must be between 250 and 300 words. You must support your post with at least two applicable resources in addition to the text to defend your positions and findings. Use the Scholarly, Peer-Reviewed, and Other Credible Sources (Links to an external site.) document for additional guidance. Always cite and reference your resources in your discussion post. Refer to APA: Citing Within Your Paper (Links to an external site.) if you need to.
