What is Organizational Development?
Organizational Development (OD) is a Lone Star College department that serves the entire college by connecting organizations, people, strategies, and processes to enrich the culture of Lone Star College through empowering its members.
The Organizational Development team leads large-scale initiatives and programs that grow our employees and the organization toward our strategic goals. In the fall 2015 semester, a college-wide cultural transformation project called LSC 20|20 began. This process helps us make the cultural shifts we need to make to achieve our goals. Learn More
LSC 20|20 is a leader-led cultural transformation process designed to create a culture of accountability and achieve Lone Star College’s key organizational results. We can define organizational culture as the way people think and act. It is the culture in an organization that ultimately produces results. The process we are undertaking will provide some very simple culture management tools to help us make the needed cultural shifts. Learn More
