Organization Development

Delivered through NTL’s action research and experiential learning

The taproot of Organization Development and the formation of NTL Institute goes back to Kurt Lewin and the founding parents of NTL over 70 years ago.

Organization Development (OD) programs at NTL today are delivered as courses or modules—we call them “learning communities”—which are highly experiential in nature and yield highly applicable learning for our participants. 

In the United States, the ten or more OD courses are designed and delivered as independently standing courses open to enrollment by the public without prerequisite. We are frequently joined by accomplished leaders, Human Resource specialists, Leadership Development professionals and OD practitioners from a broad range of organizations and market sectors. Together with the expert knowledge and facilitation of NTL member faculty, this combination makes for a rich learning environment. These same OD courses may be structured to comprise an Organization Development Certificate Program (ODCP). The Human Interaction Laboratory is a foundational prerequisite to the ODCP.

As a global organization, NTL Institute is committed to provide Organization Development learning opportunities around the world. Thoughtfully sequenced OD Certificate Programs annually engage cohorts of professionals and students in the United Kingdom and in India. The Human Interaction Laboratory is incorporated into the program as Module I in India and the U.K.
