Job Description for Organizational Development Manager

An organization that does not constantly seek to improve its internal functions runs the risk of being overrun by competitors and encountering other issues. For these reasons, many firms employ organizational development managers to examine the practices and policies currently in place; they help ensure successful ones remain functioning optimally, as well as identify potential or existing problem areas and develop solutions. Organizational development consultants are either employed or contracted by organizations; they are generally either members of upper management or in close contact with upper management, depending on the role.

Organizational development managers must have an excellent eye for detail to spot areas that need improvement. They should also have the innovation and creativity to solve problems as they arise, as well as the diligence to ensure that appropriate improvement methods are being carried out properly and delivering the intended results. These managers work closely with managers at all levels, training and instructing them on new methods and policies; they also ensure these methods and policies are communicated down to all employes. Organizational development managers typically work in office environments during regular business hours, but overtime may be required during large improvement projects.

Organizational development managers typically have a bachelor's or master's degrees in organizational development, training and development, or a related field, as well as several years of experience with organizational development. Experience in other areas of human resources may also be sufficient.
