Annual Conference 2023

Organizing for Good

26-27th October 2023

The Organizational Design Community is pleased to announce that the annual conference will be held virtually on October 26-27, 2023. The theme for this year’s conference is “Organizing for Good”. Recent years have seen a growing interest in moving beyond the traditional emphasis on shareholder value maximization to embrace a more holistic role for organizations in society. Yet key questions on whether, and how, organizations can truly deliver on these social goals while remaining financially viable remain to be answered. Similarly, organizations that pursue non-profit goals, are adopting new organizing models to embrace digital technology, attract new and unconventional ways of funding, and collaborative across sectors.

This year’s conference, co-organized by Tina Ambos and Aseem Kaul, seeks to address these questions, examining how social and financial goals can be brought together in the context of large established organizations, new start-ups, and cross-sector collaborations. Moreover, as achieving meaningful social impact requires bringing together academic insights and real-world practice, this year’s conference will showcase and discuss contemporary examples of innovative organization designs addressing the sustainable development goals through the use of new approaches, technologies, and business models.
