The term 'explorations' in the sub-title of this book reflects the philosophy which underpins its contents. It is a text that attempts to take the reader on a journey of discovery in the form of a metaphorical expedition. In doing so, the metaphors are applied to a number of key themes, namely the nature of organizations and organizational analysis, key elements of the organization development process, planned organizational change, aspects of organizational culture, and management initiatives. The book contains a collection of essays that seek to provide insights into the nature of OD.
