Abstract : The Organizational Assessment Package (OAP) and its accompanying consulting process have been in operation since 1979. Lessons and experiences from more than two years of field use needed to be incorporated into the instrument and its associated software systems. This became the purpose of a research project to both look closely at the existing OAP and to point the way toward the needed revisions in many OAP system elements supporting the consulting process. This paper is organized around two major issues. First is the description of the current OAP, the associated consulting process, and some research results pertaining to the OAP. Second is a description of the major elements in the revision and how the changes will improve parts of the OAP system. (Author)
