Organization Development Competencies - All 141 of ThemThough the list is long (141 items), and anybody referring to it for self-development will want to give concentrated attention to only a subset of items at any one time, the organization development (OD) competencies published in 2001 by the Organization Development Network is useful as a comprehensive view of what is involved in serving effectively as an organization development practitioner.
The first three-quarters of the list (108 items) consists of the more technical OD competencies, organized according to the phases and aspects of an OD effort:
- Data gathering
- Interpersonal skills
- Other soft skills (e.g., "Interpret cross-cultural influences in a helpful manner" and "Use the internet effectively")
