The number of analytics tools and sophisticated applications keeps increasing. More and more organisations are building dedicated analytics groups. Everyone in HR knows the importance of data and analysis when making talented decisions … yet organisations still struggle to put people analytics at the center of human capital decision making and organisational change.
The Separated Twins: People Analytics & Organisational Developments
People analytics and organisational development (OD) are practiced in organisations as almost entirely different professions, yet their principles are very similar. Done the right way, analytics and OD are like twins separated at birth.
At this NOCA meeting, Dr. Alec Levenson will share his insights in the foundations and overlaps where the worlds of OD and people analytics intersect to create the most meaningful insights and impactful organisational changes, thus allowing intelligent organisational transformation.
Alec will shed light on how successful change requires the right mix of process, measurement, and action. Combining the best data and measurement tools from the analytics world with the dynamic tools and frameworks used by OD to diagnose, guide and deliver organizational change and transformation programs that work.
