The ODC Course Accreditation establishes that a course or program covers a core set of fundamental common content (knowledge, skills, tools, methods, frameworks, trends, etc.) in organization design. Once endorsed, the course provider can market and advertise it as such.
The endorsement program is developed jointly by academics and practitioners from a comprehensive analysis of the organization design literature as well as from field experience.
The ODC accreditation program adds value to both course participants and providers by:
Contact the ODC Principal Office via e-mail. The ODC Principal Office sends application instructions to the course provider.
Each application is reviewed by a Review Committee and an Awarding Body. The applicant receives a decision from ODC within two months.

Accreditation by ODC allows us to provide even more value to our clients.
The ODC board appointed September 23, 2020, a task force to evaluate and recommend revisions to the criteria by which ODC accredits organization design courses.
The taskforce removed Consulting and Organization Development Skills and replaced it with Digital Transformation in the requirements.
Moreover, the taskforce revised the course evaluation focus, so the accredited and new accredited courses have new course evaluation requirements.
You can read more about it in our Accreditation Handbook here.
To be Organizational Design Community Accredited confirms that an institution’s organization design program has been carefully assessed and that its quality meets ODC’s comprehensive, global requirements for accreditation.
