Support fellow Practitioner Development opportunities
The Practitioner Development Team focuses on the body of knowledge that supports organization design work and practice. We offer webinars, e-learning courses, workshops (in-house customized and public), and other knowledge exchange resources that connect you to three dimensions of ODF organization design:
- Application: How to apply principles and concepts of organization design, including design processes, case studies, tools, techniques, practices, methodologies and pilots/experiments
- Engagement: Ways to involve customers, employees, and stakeholder in stages of organization design, large group conferences, ideation and design methods
- Principles: Organization design theory, concepts, principles, history and/or thought leadership that helps to define the depth and scope of the field
Conference Planning Committee Opportunities
The conference planning committee is responsible for determining the overall design of ODF’s annual conference. This includes selecting a location, securing exciting thought leaders, selecting concurrent presentation proposals, actively advertising the conference, mapping out the daily schedule for the event, and more. Time commitments vary, but typically range from an hour to two hours every other week from the summer before the conference through the conference itself each Spring.
