This paper uses the metaphors of the Hindu trinity – Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva, and its relevance to organisational development (OD). It explores
roles on leadership, corporate culture and change for increasing organisational growth and effectiveness. By employing hermeneutics, a qualitative methodology in interpretations, the parallel roles of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva
are drawn to show key strategies and ways of creating, maintaining and eliminating (changing) the organisational culture and organisational leadership renewal. This paper is expected to provide a new dimension in studying OD
from the Indian philosophy and cultural perspectives.
