Sociosystemic Organizational Development
Sociosystemic Organizational Development (SsOD) serves as the next step in Organizational Development (OD) and the most comprehensive of OD theories. By evaluating excellence through sociosystemic design in addition to inclusion, organizations will be committing to the demonstrable efforts necessary to actively engage in inclusion. Where MCOD and IE acknowledge that excellence can only be achieved through inclusion and that organizations that address diversity as merely a quota are limiting and therefore cannot achieve multicultural inclusion, SsOD acknowledges, along with the aforesaid, that one does not simply move to equity overnight. Thus, the model is designed to correct this incomplete narrative by imploring organizations to engage in the necessary examinations of self in order to gain the cultural competence necessary to transition through the four stages of development.
