OD and HR - an uneasy partnership
Terrence has an interesting post on Why HR and OD don't get along.
In Indian organizations the size does not exist for OD groups to exist independently, so often they end up sitting in the Learning function within HR where they essentially become very "training focussed" rather than focussing on interventions that will raise organizational performance and resilience.
My pet grouse against HR and OD people (and I must include myself in that group) is that they do not focus on passing their skills to managers. A lot of the work that they do should be done by line managers and OD/HR folks should focus on designing processes and not actually executing them.
