This chapter focuses on the community change intervention part, also known as community development. It provides insight into how to engage, process, and depart from the community as an organization development practitioner. Using the community’s location and the businesses, churches, and schools embedded in the area can create a positive outcome for the intervention. As the selected community leaders came to a consensus on what was needed to be done to ensure a positive outcome with the delivery of the vaccine, the community leaders recognized they would become the primary conduits for the vaccine program’s success. This recognition came from the community leaders having buy-in and feeling responsible for making the program work with their constituents in the community to use the resources to solve the problem. The organization development practitioners can use a metaphorical table to assist them in identifying members of the community and planning a stronger intervention for the community.
