Dr. Jack Phillips was amazing April 24 as he gave a high level overview of the process to calculate ROI on OD initiatives in organizations.  Reaction, Learning, Application, Impact, ROI are all valuable levels of evaluation addressed; ROI conservatively reports the value of OD in the language of CEOs and CFOs. 

Because Jack literally wrote the book (actually many books) on ROI he supports any industry, sector, or non-profit organization with actual case studies where the methodology was successful applied.  

Jack generously provided all attendees with a customized ROI workbook for GOOD and process maps of the ROI methodology.  He even provided every attendee with a copy of his book written specifically for our profession: Measuring the Success of Organization Development.  Several attendees received additional books from the library Jack brought to Orlando specifically to share with the GOOD Network.

The ROI Institute is offering the ROI Certification in Orlando May 18-22.  For details, please click on Workshops and Conferences page on the GOOD website.  GOOD members and guests receive a 30% discount on this 5 day certification that will change how you think about your work and your organization.  You will successful articulate the value of OD interventions in dollars.  Career enhancing!

May 2 our first ‘GOOD doing good’ event was a great success!  12 members and guests served 36 hours at A Gift for Teaching.  What a great feeling to serve great non-profit organizations that need volunteer support!  What a great way to build relationships with other GOOD members; doing good in Orlando!

June brings our annual Best Practice event.  This is a member and guest favorite program each year as we learn what GOOD members are doing successfully, directly from them!  These are snapshots of practices, initiatives, interventions, and data gathering.  We always leave this meeting truly impressed with the talents and expertise of our members.  We look forward to seeing you there!

Best wishes for the end of the school year, and the Memorial Day weekend to make summer official!  Please let myself or any member of our Leadership Team know how we can best support you?                  

Our team feels privileged to represent GOOD members in 2015.  We are already thinking about 2016!  Please consider if you would like to step up to a leadership role in GOOD in 2016; roles come in all sizes.

See you in June,
