Our mission is to become OD professionals who are responsible for applying OD theories and practices to help build healthy organizations with high ethical standards. Our members dedicate their thoughtful efforts to create a sustainable and flourishing society through practicing high level of expertise in OD.
We offer a safe environment where anyone can come aboard as an equal partner. As a learning community, together, we enjoy acquiring knowledge about theories and practices of OD and its related fields. Every participant is encouraged to share their reflections through experiential learning dialogue.
ODAJ expects every participant to be responsible, to be open to the diverse voices of diverse participants in and around the community. Every member, including treasurer, and co-chairs of ODAJ are responsible for listening to the voices of the community as honest feedback, including our failures. Consequently, we ODAJ hope that every participant knows about the situations that the community has experienced and our future journey.
Everything we do at ODAJ including the learning activities as well as the management of ODAJ is in accordance with OD values. Exactly in the same way as OD practitioners do for their clients.
Our eternal mission is to help create a sustainable society, ethically and economically, through our practices.
