Organizational Development provides an opportunity for transformation, both within organizations and across the broader systems in which they operate. Internally, focusing on organizational culture can increase employee engagement by helping establish clear expectations, illustrating the importance of the work, providing the resources necessary to do the job, and building trust in supervisors and managers. At the systems level, organizational development can help build capacity to engage in collaborative partnerships with other agencies and community-based organizations by streamlining practices and strengthening infrastructure.
Evaluations allow organization to better articulate their work, and meet their intended objectives and outcomes. Through real-time data analysis of outcomes and impact, organizations can use evaluation as a tool to ensure their programs continue to meet their desired goals. The results of an evaluation can also provide concrete data to guide future efforts.
