Abstract

Staff behaviour is a strategic factor in the profit and loss, so why is HR not the driver of organizational results?

The OPD-Theory™ of organizational design was born from the question ‘why?’ beginning with the background science, developing improved social science tools and then applying those tools to the question of the exact causal link between organization strategy and staff behaviour. The result was the OPD-Theory™ of organization design and management within which HR emerges as a key driver of results.

Keywords: human resource management, organizational design, building high performnace, the spiritual aspect of engagement
