    Web Links

    Organization Development Network
    This site offers news and information about various organization development topics. Several articles from the OD Practitioner are included here.

    Fast Company article
    Another great Fast Company article on how dramatic changes occur. This article describes the turnaround of the U.S. Mint. It looks at the cultural shift from a no-hurry bureaucracy to a customer-focused business.

    Imaginization Home Page
    This site summarizes many ideas from Gareth Morgan's books (e.g. Imaginization). The focus is on managing organizational change and thinking differently about organizations and their environments.

    Managing Change in the Auto Industry
    This Fast Company article describes how renegade employees at several automobile companies use change management practices to bring auto executives into the 21st century. For example, you'll learn how Toyota's IT group uses "sneaker meetings" to change attitudes and how the IT group at Ford Motor Company relies on positive political tactics.

    Appreciative Inquiry in sustainable development
    This unique Canadian Web site describes a sustainable development project in India that relies on appreciative inquiry rather than problem-solving to build better communities.

    Appreciative Inquiry Resource Centre
    This British site offers a wealth of information on appreciative inquiry, including an ongoing series of newsletters.

    U.S. Defence Logistics agency
    This site cheers on the reinvention of government. It includes interesting information on reengineering, organizational change, and related topics. The links on employee surveys provide detailed information on morale and organizational issues.

    How Do You Feel About Change?
    This seven-item scale might give you some idea about where you stand on change. Do you look forward to change, or shiver at the thought of it?
