Reskilling evolves HR professionals to organizational development roles
Rapid automation and digitization have disrupted many traditional job roles and gave rise to many new roles to address the changing disruptions in the organization structure and business functions. Organizational Development Specialist (ODS) is one such role that was created to enable change management with skills like training program assessment, instructional design, strategic planning, cost monitoring, and employee training among others.
Traditional HR, business administration, psychology, training, and IT talents can be reskilled into an ODS role by taking university courses and certifications like Organizational Development Certification (University of Denver), Linkage’s on-site training and certification, organizational analysis certification (Stanford University) etc. Tech giants like Amazon are leveraging ODS to design and deploy concrete learning and development framework for their workforce to enable change management across traditional and new-age business functions.
