Dialogic Organization Development (DOD)
Dialogic OD is the next step in the evolution of organizational change theory, from thinking of organizations as organisms that adapt to their environments, to organizations as networks of meaning-making, always in a process of becoming.
According to Edgar Schein: "Dialogic Organization Development (OD) could not have arrived at a better time. The assumptions underlying it and some of the goals for social change and improvement that it articulates not only build on an important historical legacy but reinforce those aspects of OD that will be most needed in the future."
In 2015, Gervase Bushe and Robert Marshak release a publication "Dialogic Organization Development
: The Theory and Practice of Transformational Change".
