Eoyang, Carson K.
MetadataShow full item record
A conceptual framework for assessing and choosing among alternative OD interventions is presented. The method is based upon recognition that the welfare of individuals, work groups, and the total organization are not always positively correlated. A number of examples illustrates the various trade-offs and interactions among these independent welfare considerations. A specific heuristic method for choosing among alternative interventions is presented. Finally several propositions stimulated by this approach are suggested.
