People Analytics and Change Masterclass

February 8, 2022 - February 23, 2022

It’s time to integrate analytics and OD.

The fields of People Analytics and Organization Development (OD) are at a crossroads. The number of tools and sophisticated applications keeps increasing, more organizations are building dedicated analytics groups, everyone in HR knows the importance of data and analysis when making talent decisions … yet organizations still struggle to put analytics at the center of human capital decision making and organizational change. At the same time, business model complexity and the pace of change are increasing, and the importance of applying OD to improve team dynamics and business performance is at an all time high … yet the principles of OD are not consistently and widely applied by HR business partners.

This masterclass provides tools and frameworks to overcome the current challenges facing People Analytics and OD. It is designed for the two critical communities of professionals who have to work together for People Analytics to achieve the new Golden Age: analytics professionals, and organizational development (OD) and HR generalists.

Increase the breadth and impact of analytics and OD through the following modules:

Turn data into C Suite decision making: Analytics efforts too often focus on finding facts to demonstrate “objective” realities in the org system without ensuring they resonate with the right audience. This module shows how to influence and drive the right interpretation of the data from the business leaders’ perspective, not just factual presentations of statistical analyses.

Integrate analytics and OD to activate successful org change and transformation: Success change requires the right mix of process, measurement and action. Combine the best data and measurement tools from the analytics world, with the dynamic tools and frameworks used by OD to diagnose, guide and deliver organizational change and transformation programs that work.

Tactics to engage senior business leaders. Deploying the right mix of OD plus analytics to engage key stakeholders and decision makers is both art and science. This module shows how to strike the right balance to achieve maximum results.

Conduct org diagnostics using qualitative and quantitative analysis: Classic analytics approaches rely too heavily on analyzing and collecting data from individuals, rather than the teams and org units where the business and strategic outcomes are realized. Comprehensive org diagnostics of the drivers of business performance require a combination of case study and systems analytics.

The masterclass will also include a review of cutting edge and advanced analytics techniques to clarify, for both analytics and non-analytics professionals:

  • What the techniques are good for, and their limitations
  • How best to apply them on their own, versus in conjunction with other measurement, diagnosis and change approaches

Examples of the techniques and issues to be addressed include machine learning, network analysis, advanced survey design and analysis, and identifying economic relevance rather than just statistical significance.

Who should attend:

  • People analytics professionals
  • OD professionals
  • HR business partners
