OD Values and Mormonism: Creating Adaptive Systems
Author: MARK L. McCONKIE and R. WAYNE BOSS
Published in PAQ, Vol. 30 No. 1
Our central thesis is that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday
Saints, nicknamed “Mormons”, has created a culture which is not
only friendly to but which also encourages change. This culture grows
out of doctrinal preferences which recognize the importance of change
to processes of personal and institutional growth, and which has
therefore been receptive to administrative practices which encourage
the same behaviors, albeit under a different nomenclature, that OD
theory, practice, and interventions support.
