Organisational Development with Theory U offers practical tools based on the ideas in the books Presence by Peter Senge and Theory U by Otto Scharmer. As a model, Theory U provides new insights into change processes. It is a social learning model which is attracting attention all over the world by helping groups and communities to harness the wisdom of the crowd and bring about sustainable results that benefit people, the planet and profit.
A practical tool for organisational development
Organisational Development with Theory U shows how companies can use Theory U in their daily business. Several exercises and techniques are used to illustrate the possibilities of the U-process and how to facilitate groups undertaking the process.
