New organizational forms have recently emerged. Organizational work has moved away from traditional work characterized by bureaucratic authority in fixed hierarchies, lines of commands, and labor division with long-term organizational membership to more temporary, spontaneous, overlapping, interconnected, self-organized, open, and collaborative forms. Temporary organizations such as project teams, task forces, strategic initiatives, and other relatively autonomous groups replace or at least complement traditional organizational work. Companies collaboratively work together with partners, customers, and even competitors in business models and ecosystems to solve problems and find growth opportunities. This transition is embedded in an environment that is characterized by turbulence, uncertainty, rapid change, and complexity and that offers new technological opportunities thanks to digitization. While there is promising research that attempts to better understand these modern organizational forms, important questions on how to manage in this new reality remain unanswered. This SMS extension at EBS University aims to provide a forum for discussing a range of issues related to coordination and control of these modern organizational forms, such as:
The SMS Extension at EBS University will bring together a panel of distinct scholars of various perspectives and experiences doing research on modern forms of organizational work and/or on coordination and control of organizational work. In addition to two academic key note speakers, we intend to invite as a third keynote speaker a leading executive from an organization that is at the forefront of these new organizational forms.
The program will consist of keynotes, panels, and breakout sessions to enable moderated, interactive, and in-depth discussions on specific avenues for future research.
This will be a one day workshop with a cocktail reception or dinner for the participants on the evening after the workshop.
Participants of this extension are also entitled to attend all sessions of the EBS Symposium: Design the Future! on September 21st and are invited to extend their stay for the full EBS Symposium until September 23rd at the young professional rate (ebs-symposium.eu). The EBS Symposium features more than 45 speakers from both the political and corporate worlds to discuss the role of innovation in designing the future.
