Organisation Development workshop

Thursday, August 3, 2017 - 09:30 to 16:00

Michael Young Building,
The Open University,

The Centre for Policing Research and Learning invite you to a workshop on Organization Development.  It takes place on Thursday 03 August 2017 in Milton Keynes.  Early booking is needed as places are limited.  Centre members will have priority booking until Friday 07 July 2017 and after that date, the event will be open to all police agencies. 


The workshop, with sessions from leading practitioners and academics, including 2 chief constables, aims to explore key developments in workforce reform and workforce wellbeing, by drawing on research evidence about good and innovative practices, and also examining opportunities and challenges for the future. It will provoke further thinking and reflection for police agencies about approaches to organization development, drawing on both police examples and evidence from other sectors.  It builds on work by the College of Policing Professional Community Chair on Organization Development (CC Andy Rhodes) and on the work of the Workforce Reform Framework (led by CC Francis Habgood and Dr Steven Chase). 


All OU Centre for Policing Research and Learning partners are invited to this event.  The workshop is likely to appeal to those involved in organizational development, workforce development, staff wellbeing, and digital innovation for organizational learning.  The event may appeal both to forces and to OPCCs.  The workshop is free, but cancellation within 48 hours will incur a charge of £50.
