In the frame of this partnerships we are organizing Connect Group Meetings in Europe.

ODN Europe is the European Chapter of the Organization Development Network, an international professional association of organisation development practitioners.

In our 2016 meeting, the Cooperation between INOC and ODNE (Organization Development Network Europe)  was developed some big steps further. Together with Gifford Tanser and Maxine Craig, delegates of ODNE, we designed the further cooperation between INOC and ODNE.

INOC will not become a membership organization, but stay an international network and an informal meeting point for  discussing latest developments in the organizational field. However, for those of you, who are interested to be connected to the world of OD, we full-heartedly recommend to become a member of ODNE.
