Organizational development is the change process that supports improvement of the enterprise as a whole. It provides a framework for agencies to understand the current situation and identify opportunities for improvement to meet the agency mission and goals. Employee development is a strategic investment in the development of the workforce so they are prepared to carry out the agency’s mission and goals.
