Organization Development: A Practitioner's Guide for OD and HR
Organization Development: A Practitioner's Guide for OD and HR

5.0 out of 5 stars Book review on OD - Practitioners guide, 17 Aug. 2011
This is a fabulous book for those of us who are activley involved in OD.

Judge & Holbeche have written a classic 'how to' book with some great backgound materials along with good, practical stuff that helps break down OD into manageable chunks.

The book is written in 2 parts, Judge does the first part which is all about the history & background of OD plus gives her take on the key priciples, models, theories etc that define what OD is and what an OD practitioner needs to be able to do to effectievly work in the field. There is some great materials for OD practitioners here.

Holbeche then takes these principles, ideas etc and relates them to the world of HR, she makes some interesting links into the practicalities of HR in organisations and has also included some insights through case studies.

Buy it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Shein's Org Culture & Leadership book review, 17 Aug. 2011
What I have read so far I really like. The topic is thought provoking and the way Schein has written it makes it easy to get your mind around the sometimes nebulous concept of 'culture'.

His ideas about how culture is made up and the impact you can have on it is really helpful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loft Ladder Review, 17 Oct. 2010
Does all it says on the package.

Good quality and reasonably easy to fit. Make sure that you drill appropriate sized holes for the main fixing screws as the heads are easily stripped, I substituted my own heavy duty screws but otherwise it appears to be a well made and well finished product.

5.0 out of 5 stars SAMSUNG X420, 8 Mar. 2010
Great purchase.

Easy to iuse and does all what it says on the blurb.

Battery life is excellent and performance on normal tasks like word processing, spread sheets etc is fine.

Keyboard is good to use and the whole machine feels well made with no wobbly plastics.

Good fast start up from sllep mode etc.

One issue re WiFi driver which was sorted out with a phone call to Samsung and a quick download although I had to connect to the Internet using a cable so a little hassle if you don't have the requisite cable.
