The OD Committee (ODC) has initiated a change management project in order to implement the 2020 Strategy for the Union, which was adopted in February of this year.
Review and propose changes to how the OD Union is managed and enable its objectives to be met. To define and set in place a structure, an operating model and a culture within the ODU community that will enable the implementation of the strategy. It should also implement a system that will allow sustainable incremental improvements within the ODU and into its future. The results should lead to an active modern global network, as well as inform the key details of a new constitution.
Start Date: 17 August 2020
Duration: 3 months

The OD committee has realised the need for an operational model review and a refresh of the approach to how the Union is managed. After creating sub-committees to implement the components of the strategy, it became clear that this piece of work falls outside of the reasonable expectation of a group of volunteers. The work needs experience, a high level of skill and dedication of professional time. Given the proactive work that Brendan Jenman had been doing, his suggestions being made and based on his union knowledge, relevant professional experience and willingness to take on the role, it was decided to engage with him formally.
The intellectual capital that exists to date (like the strategy, communication methods, existing constitution, policies and existing operating model) will be used to inform, and then refine the elements of the ODU. The initial effort will focus on consolidation tasks, ideas and risks, some quick enabling wins and on the creation of guiding principles and brand; utilising the purpose and objectives of the ODU.
