I have been working on my doctoral degree in organizational development for 8 years: 3 years of coursework and 5 years of dissertation. I have submitted my dissertation to my committee and will defend on April 17, 2016. Then I will most likely have some revisions to do by April 15. When I complete my revisions, I graduate immediately, though I don’t walk until May 21. I promise that, when I graduate, I will recommence my weekly posts here on HR-OD.com. I’ll keep you informed. Thanks for your patience.
