Abstract [en]

Little systematic evidence exists on overall effects of Organization Development (OD). Thirty-five empirical studies assessing the impact of OD activities provide the basis for analysis. A typology, derived from research variables reported in the literature, is used to investigate both overall impact of OD and the differential impact of unique classes of interventions.
