The Canadian Organization Development Institute (CODI) was formed in 2005 by Marilyn Laiken, Ingrid Richter, and Jeff Solway. In the past 8 years, CODI has developed a comprehensive, in-depth program that is unique in Canada. All our programs are theory-based and highly pragmatic. They are designed for practitioners. Our programs reflected a commitment to experiential and small group learning, and are taught by leading OD professionals.
In 2015, CODI began development of a designation program for OD professionals. CODI also began to complete the transition of its programs to be delivered by the Schulich School of Business. These programs can be accessed by clicking here.
CODI itself is now an incorporated not-for-profit organization. Our mission to is to further develop the designation program as well as support the development of the OD profession in Canada.
