In an effort to increase its viability and effectiveness, a company will employ interventions as it implements various change agents. The purpose of such interventions is to improve productivity, performance or behaviors through a series of structured individual and team activities.
My question to the group is how can effectiveness of OD interventions be measured?

For evaluating the effectiveness of the said intervention, it can be done by..
- Evaluate organizational performance 
- Assess organizational culture 
- Conduct employee 360 evaluations 
- Assess leadership strengths and weaknesses 
- Assess employee satisfaction levels 
- Evaluate organizational effectiveness 
- Analyze and evaluate companies 
- survey methods
- focus groups
- interviews
- small group discussion
- performance analysis --quantitative
- performance analysis-qualitative
- discussion on lessons/ applications learnt
- presentation analysis
- theoretical questions/ answers
- tests
- case study discussions
- presentation of solution models
- systems study
- process study
- customer satisfaction survey
- technology usage survey
- employee satisfaction survey

The choice of the method lies on a number of factors like:

-objectives of the exercise
-choice of interventions
-length of the program
-frequency of evaluations
-resource available
-time constraint
- etc 
Let me know if this helps.
