Every year we invite the ODF community members to submit proposals on case studies, advanced theory and new methodologies that impact the practice of organization design.

We are looking for dynamic thinkers who will engage our conference participants in thought-provoking, diverse conversation and experiential concurrent workshop sessions that challenge our assumptions, stretch our thinking, and expand our skills. ODF is committed to providing a conference experience that inspires, connects, enables, and supports the exciting work of organization design.


MONDAY, APRIL 20, 2020

The Organization Design Forum devotes the day before the conference to workshops that build knowledge, skills and competence for our different types of practitioners.  It is our goal to help elevate and deepen the practice of organization design by offering learning opportunities that enable or support the field.

We are finalizing details, but intend to offer an additional session – something to expand the thinking for our more advanced practitioners.

“ODF conferences present information relative to the practice of organization design and organization development from the basics, including theory, to cutting edge ideas and practices. It’s an excellent return on investment for practitioners and academics.”

“This was, unquestionably, the finest professional conference of its kind I have ever attended.”

“This was my first conference and it was a really great experience. Valuable learning and networking opportunities, and I felt very welcome. It truly had a feeling of a community of experts and practitioners. A 10+! Thank you.
