ABSTRACT
The article deals with the importance of organization development (OD) to human resource (HR). OD is a technical science with lots of logic and reasoned thought thrown in. It focuses on ways of working and their efficiency and works on effective restructuring, comprehensive job definitions and flexibilities. It is also a flexible framework within which all other parts of HR, including employee relations and talent management, operate.
