Reports the results of a recent survey that investigated the contemporary practice of organizational development among the USA’s fastest growing firms (as identified by Fortune magazine). States that although the project received a 31 per cent response rate overall, only 18 organizations provided usable results for analysis purposes. After an initial overview of the study, compares and contrasts the data collected from these organizations with results from related survey projects using similar sets of items. Also addresses the implications of these results for the practice of OD/HRD.
