This research reconceptualises the domain of people in organisations and places it on a sound intellectual foundation that will lead to improved technology for organisations. The article argues that organisational theory must originate from within a general theory of psychology that accounts for all human endeavours. OPD theory offers an approach for designing and operating an organisation that enables the greatest chance of strategic success. OPD theory challenges current organisation theory, redefines the concept of human capital, links human resources (HR) costs to the profit and loss account, and enables the capitalization of an organisation’s HR investment.
