Course Description

This one-day workshop provides participants with an understanding of HR development models and knowledge of how to apply Organizational Development (OD) methods to HR strategic planning and executions. Essential functions of HR, such as recruiting, developing and retaining talent and leaders, are critical to any organization. The rapid pace of change in today's economy has been amplified by the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on work systems. HR departments must become more strategic; shifting from human resource management to human resource development and further to organizational development. To make meaningful contributions to organizational mission and vision, HR leaders need to go beyond policies and programs, and become strategic thinkers, systematic organizational designers, and true business partners. This workshop features an active learning format (case studies and hands-on practice), as well as an overview of strategic HR and OD practice at leading global companies. The instructors are seasoned practitioners who have a track record of delivering strategic HR and OD programs to improve organizational effectiveness both in Japan and other countries. The target audience are those who have a strong need to strengthen organizational culture and performance in sustainable ways.
