Most obvious group of OD practitioners are those peoplespecializing in OD as a professional. They may be internal orexternal consultants who offer professional services toorganizations.2. The second set of people to whom the term OD practitionerapplies are those specializing in fields related to OD, such as rewardsystem, organization design and total quality and so on.3. The third set of people to whom the term applies is t heincreasing number of managers and administrators who havegained competence in OD and who apply it to their own work area.But in fact, in practice, the distinctions among the three sets of ODpractitioners are blurring.
