The two major goals of OD programs are

(1) To improve the functioning of individuals, teams and the total organization, and the total organization, and
Books on OD  theory
(2) To teach organizations members how to continuously improve their own functioning.

Organization development deals with the gamut of “people problems” and “work systems problems” in organizations like :

Poor Morale, Low Productivity, Poor Quality, Interpersonal Conflict, Unclear or Inappropriate Goals, Inappropriate Leadership Styles, and the like.

In short, where individuals, teams and organizations are not realizing their potential, OD can improve the situation.
