Organisational Development Strategic Network

  • By admin

London Councils co-ordinates the London Organisational Development Strategic network which is a collaborative forum developing and sharing best practice, identifying potential cross-council strategic interventions and efficiencies in the delivery of workforce learning and development activities.


All London boroughs may nominate an appropriate representative to be a member of this strategic network.  The council’s representative will be employed in the HR/OD field and have the appropriate seniority and authority to make decisions and contribute on behalf of their employer.

Roles and responsibilities of the members:

  • To attend network meetings.  If a member cannot attend then they must nominate a suitable colleague to attend in their place.
  • To volunteer and take the lead on elements of the network's work programme.
  • To contribute to the activities within the network's work programme.
  • Obtain appropriate authority to outline their Council's position to contributing to cross-council initiatives.
  • Provide data to enable benchmarking analysis to enable efficiency and best practice reviews.
  • To cascade recommendations, information and progress against the network's work programme within their organisation.
  • Proactivity work with the Heads of HR network.

Co-Chairs:  Glyn Drew (Enfield), Kaye Saxton-Lea (City of London) and Diane Lomas (Tower Hamlets)
