Workshop On Organisational Development Process – 15th July to 17th July, 2016.

A Workshop on Organizational Development Process was conducted at KROSS Resource Centre from 15.07.2016 to 17.07.2016 which was attended by 30 participants from all over the state of Karnataka.

The workshop began with a prayer song followed by welcome address by Mr. Clement Fernandes, Manager – Program Support, KROSS to the Resource Persons Team, Diocesan Social Work Directors & Staff and all others present.

The need of the workshop and its relevance was highlighted as proper systems and structures were needed for effective functioning, bringing in positive change relevance and credibility to the organization besides building mutual trust and respect among the staff and organization said Rev. Fr. Sebastian Fernandes, Director, KROSS in his keynote address.

Mr. Jimmy Mathew and his Team who facilitated the Workshop elucidated the need of Organization Development Process as it not only creates an enabling atmosphere to bring in the needed change but helps in taking remedial measures to improve the health of the organization. They explained that the organizations have to be adoptive, i.e., should have both willingness and ability to change. The participants were divided into groups and group discussions initiated on the pros and cons of the process.

The participants drew up an action plan to bring in the required changes in their respective dioceses and planned a follow-up workshop to share their learning and what further steps could be taken to put in the required system and structure in place.

The workshop ended with a vote of thanks by Fr. Anil Crasta, Designate Director, Sevasangama, Gulbarga.
