EODF Book Club – Organization Design Frameworks, Principles, and Approaches
November 2 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm CETFree
Join us on Nov 2nd 5pm CET as we continue our Book of the Month Club Selections, this time around “Organization Design Frameworks, Principles, and Approaches” by Jeroen van Bree.
This book provides a practical guide to the field of organization design, grounded in academic literature. It is designed to be relevant to Master’s students, as well as practitioners looking for evidence-based guidance. The book provides a solid theoretical background, defining what organization design is, exploring the history of the field, and describing established frameworks and theories. It then investigates why organizations may seek to embark on a re-design, and what a well-designed organization looks like, using examples of contemporary organizations to illustrate the principles derived from organization design theory. From there, it takes students through how organization design occurs, examining various models for intervention, the core steps in designing an organization, and what challenges a practitioner may face, all illustrated by stories from the field. This book includes a wide range of didactic elements for students, including learning objectives, case study examples, review questions, and further reading. It examines the impact of new ways of organizing, and draws on the author’s years of experience as a consultant to ensure that academic theory is seamlessly melded with practical application. The book is available on Amazon and on SpringerLink.
Jeroen van Bree will be joining us on the day and we hope to see as many of you as possible.
