Have you discovered Dialogic Organization Development yet?
Dialogic OD is the next step in the evolution of organizational change theory, from thinking of organizations as organisms that adapt to their environments, to organizations as conversations where individual, group, and organizational actions result from self-organizing, socially constructed realities created and sustained by the prevailing narratives, stories, and conversations through which people make meaning about their experiences.

It is an interesting development of traditional diagnostic OD. If you would like to learn more, the first international conference on the subject is coming up in Vancouver later this year at The First International Conference on Dialogic Organization Development

It has a lot in common with my thinking on Conversational Leadership.

If you are interested in Knowledge Management, the Knowledge Café or the role of conversation in organizational life then you my be interested in this online book I am writing on Conversational Leadership
