OD and PC
Sandeep asks how Performance Consulting is different from OD.
Performance Consulting focusses on a learner's performance goals rather than learning needs and helps in achieving that goal.
Yes there are overlaps with OD.
However, OD [academically at least] focusses on the efficacy when two human systems interact (during cross-functional teams, or mergers and acquisitions) or when human systems face a change with non-human systems (new processes and systems). OD's scope is therefore the team, groups and organization and it looks at underlying causes a lot deeper than PC.
As I said, that difference is academic. I have seen training groups rechristen themselves as OD and continue doing what they were doing :-)
