2017 China: Asia OD Network Conference

It is with great pleasure that I  announce the upcoming conference.

link to conference brochure and registration

There is a growing interest in organization development in China.  My first edition of Practicing Organization Development was the first organization change book ever translated into Chinese.

I have been working with Dr. Lee Lu  perhaps the last 10 year to help bring OD to China.

Dr. Lu  persistently is bringing organization development alive in China.

I have Lee as the first person from China who has a legitimate Ph.D in organizational development  from where I started in 1968,  George Williams then and now Benedictine University.

This will be our third conference in China.

We have assembled five of the top 10 organization development people in Asia to present  including Dr. T.V Rao. TV  the premier student of Dr. Udai Pareek. Udai  brought organizational development, training, and development, leadership development, HR, HRD, and feedback all to Asia first and India first.

TV Rao and Dr. Khandelwal will honor him at the conference  around a special edition of India’s top organizational change people sharing their memories and their current work around OD.

Dr Khandelwal is recently appointed by the Government as member of Banks Board Bureau, which appoints Chairmen and whole time directors in Public Sector banks and is given responsibility to pilot reforms in the Banking sector. He is also a senior advisor, KPMG. He is also Chairman (Designate) of a bank in Mauritius.

He is a leading Transformational leader, author, educationist and HRD expert            

The name of the Sage book is:

HRD, OD, and Institution Building-Essays in Memory of Udai Pareek …

My case in the book written by my wife soon to be  Dr. Sullivan and Professor Vijayakumar
Yours truly giving Udai the first ever Lifetime achievement award from AODN in India

      from your Blog, Kathleen and I agree with Drucker and Tom. I grew up next to Tom F.

      “Thomas Friedman, New York Times columnist and author of many books on the world of work, titled one of his recent columns “New Rules,” and delivered the same message: “More than ever now, lifelong learning is the key to getting into, and staying in, the middle class,” Friedman wrote. “There is a quote attributed to the futurist Alvin Toffler that captures this new reality: In the future ‘illiteracy will not be defined by those who cannot read and write, but by those who cannot learn and relearn.’ Any form of standing still is deadly.”

      If Drucker, Hall, and Friedman are correct, the implications for the role of learning and development are huge. The need for constant reinvention is upon us – perhaps even more than for other professions. How do we help our organizations – and the people who work in them – reinvent themselves as needed, in a world requiring them to do so again and again? Also, what does this mean for how we manage our own careers?
