This thesis is a compendium of some of the theories, models, and tolls of Organizational Development (OD) and serves as a guide for the author. It represents the current state in the author's quest to apply these theories to the Navy's environment and operational commitments. This OD Handbook starts with a definition and purpose of OD. A list of consultant competencies and behaviors are then generated along with marketing techniques and consultant ethics. Diagnostic models to assist in analysis of the organization are presented. "Consultant Tools" are discussed in terms of transition workshop, hints on data gathering and feedback, strategic planning packages, guidance on contracting, and the stages of group development.
