    Overview of Large-Scale Interventions

    The field of Organization Development sees large-scale organizational change as being across most or all of an organization. However, with the recent focus on transformational — fundamental and radical — change, practitioners often refer to large-scale interventions as means to accomplish transformational change. Types of large-scale interventions are also referred to as whole systems models.

    In Leading Large Scale Change: A Practical Guide, the authors define large-scale change as “the process of mobilizing a large collection of individuals, groups and organizations toward a vision of a fundamentally new future state, by means of:
    • Key themes that can make a big difference
    • A shift in power and a more distributed leadership
    • Comprehensive and active engagement of stakeholders
    • Mutually reinforcing changes in multiple systems and processes”

    The following links give a broad overview of various large-scale interventions.
