Jim Murphy has a new question at the Mass Bay OD Learning Community Blog: What is the relationship between organizational development and organizational strategy?

One of my favorite organizational models is STP, for Situation-Target-Path (originated, I believe, by OD guru Richard A. Schmuck).

In reflecting upon the Situation, a strategist looks comprehensively at the current state, where the organization is at the present moment.

In reflecting upon the Target, a strategist sets objectives and goals, intended to reach some desired state.

In reflecting upon the Path, a strategist formulates action plans designed to attain the goals and thereby reach the desired state.

Organization development practitioners can help their clients in each of these phases of organizational progress.
