Organizational Psychology

Richard Carson
My doctoral studies and academic research have been in organizational psychology. However, the breadth of my studies covers this, as well as industrial/organizational (I/O), organizational development, and change management. If fact, I incorporated the later into my trademark PSOCM® (public-sector organizational change management).  

Although I am a subject matter expert (SME) in these fields, I also work in the related fields of human resources; total quality management; strategic planning; performance measurement, auditing and management; continuous improvement; business process re-engineering (BPR) and mapping; and customer service.

These are a few of my most recent organizational audits:

Organizational Development Report for OODN (CCP 2014)

Organizational Development in the Public Sector (WSU 2013)

Solano County, California Organizational Audit (Citygate 2010)



The Polymatheia Project... this is an experimental project I am working on as part of my doctorate. It is a work in progress. You can add to it, ask me about it, but don't be too critical... yet. Wait for it! As my boys used to ask "Are we there yet." And as my girls said, "You get what you get and you don't throw a fit." My advice?  Listen to the girls.
The Washington State University Individual Interdiscilinary Doctorate Program (IIDP) is designed to allow the student to create a program outside of the established academic disciplines of arts and sciences. The emerging field of change management finds its roots in industrial and organizational psychology and other related subfields in business and the social sciences.
