      Wednesday, Feburary 26, 2020 at 5 pm SGT

      Topic: Organizational Design and Development in the Age of Algorithm

      Description: In this session, we will bring you to the cutting edge of how organizations are being (re)-designed today in the age of algorithmic intelligence. We begin by identifying the limits of traditional top down, “box- and-arrows” approaches to design and show how we can do better by approaching design problems from a “bottom-up” perspective. The new approaches exploit the vast computational power and data resources made possible by digitalization, as well as recent theoretical breakthroughs in conceptualizing the problems of organization design. 

      Highlights for this session are: 

    • Identifying the limitation of current approaches to organization design
    • The use of data to answer the fundamental “people” questions in organizations: who to hire, develop and retain? How to understand the culture of an organization?
    • The “digital twin” approach to learning the most from your data
    • Using graph (network) theory to diagnose structural weaknesses in organizations
    •  Prototyping design changes: in the computer (using simulations), in workshops (through gamification) or in the actual organizational context (through A/B tests).

    About the speaker: 

    Phanish Puranam is Roland Berger Chair Professor of Strategy & Organization Design at INSEAD. 

    Phanish’s research in organizational science focuses on how organizations work, and how we can make them work better. His current research focuses on how algorithms are shaping organization designs.   

    Phanish has published his research extensively in internationally reputed academic journals, and has served in senior editorial roles in such journals. His research has won international awards and competitive grants awarded across the social and natural sciences. He has also served in advisory/training roles with several global corporations as well as public sector agencies.

    His book “The Microstructure of Organizations” (Oxford University Press, 2018) offers researchers a new perspective on organization design. Phanish’s books for practitioners include "Corporate Strategy: Tools for analysis and decisions" (co-authored with Bart Vanneste, Cambridge University Press, 2016) and “India Inside” (co-authored with Nirmalya Kumar, Harvard Business Review Press, 2012), which won critical acclaim for its balanced look at the prospect of India emerging as a global hub for innovation. 

    Webinar is only for ODC, EODF and ODF members only.

    Registration closes 25th Feburary 5 pm (SGT),  2020.
