BACKGROUND

Organizational Design is a dynamic process where the organization adapts to new challenges and creates new opportunities.
Successful organizations in fast changing environments and technologies are challenged to adapt their organization design more often and more quickly than ever before.

Organizational design, misfit management, co-evolution, designs for fast change, and dynamic organizational design methodologies are foci to study organizing in this fast paced world. Living laboratories, computational models, longitudinal data and analyses are research technologies for learning differently.

In this workshop, we want to focus on organizational design addressing new questions and using new research concepts, approaches and techniques.

We invite papers on: organizational learning, knowledge management, misfit or misalignment evaluation and management, organizational adaptation to fast changing environments, virtual organizations, , information systems in organizations, incentives in information rich organizations, leadership and organization, organizational climate and culture, among others. Papers which address change and dynamics explicitly are particularly welcome. In all, we are particularly interested in the effect of managerial choice on the organization’s performance.

The methods of organizational design are multiple and include: longitudinal data and analysis, simulation and computational models, field studies of organizations, in depth case studies, and theoretical studies of organizations.
