In all of the above three organizations some sort of progress took place so discussing each organization separately.

But Now it obviously seems that ECI ve 2 advantages and no disadvantage  so you guys should  go with it for actual concept of Organizational Development is implemented.

 For explain solution  view 1 to 10 lec topics and main main headlines and then prove with logical reasoning by actual concept of Organizational Development.
