The cardinal rule in the OD profession is this: Opinions don’t matter. This is because opinions can often be subjective, biased, or based on erroneous information. Theories and scholarly, peer-reviewed literature are much more objective and reliable; therefore, they should be incorporated into every OD assessment, diagnosis, intervention, and overall change strategy. In this week’s Discussion, you will have the opportunity to apply theories in your analysis of a real-world organization.
