Organizational Development versus Organizational Transformation

I am preparing a short assignment on change management and should discuss change management models. While reading handbook of HRM practice by Armstrong, I ran into several change management models discussed under OD and under OT the models are referred to as "transition management". What is the difference between the changes ran under organizational development and those under organizational transformation and how should I differentiate the two i.e. should I include them all into change management models or only those discussed under OD?

A superior model for change management is ADKAR. Check it out.
