Woodman and Pasmore note a number of shifts that are causing us to re-think what we know and how we intervene in organizations today. These shifts, and their attendant effects on individuals, organizations and society, have opened up exciting possibilities for the advancement of O.D. These two great minds will also discuss how high rates of failure in organizational change efforts call attention to the need to identify and address persistent problems that threaten success.
