ODC is actively working toward sharing contemporary and relevant knowledge in the field of Organization Design. The webinar series is one of the mediums for this.

We have designed a policy for webinars that aims to balance the twin goals of disseminating organization design knowledge at large as well as providing unique value for members.

Webinar topics relate to Organization Design, broadly defined. Presenters are a mix of ODC members and non-members who bring specialized expertise.

ODC members have first priority in registering for webinars that have size restrictions (e.g. because of hands on components).Approximately a week before the webinar, the remaining available seats will be opened to non-members.

All webinars are archived on the ODC website.

To get full access to the recordings, one must be an ODC member.

If you would like to propose a webinar, please email us at for the schedule and technical details.

    The Impact of Blockchain Technology on Organizational Design

    8th June 2023, Thursday at 8 am Eastern Standard Time

    Blockchain technology has the potential to significantly impact organizational design by enabling new forms of collaboration. Traditionally, organizations have been designed around a hierarchical structure, with decision-making power concentrated at the top. This structure relies on trust in the leadership and management to make informed decisions for the organization. In contrast, blockchain technology enables decentralized decision-making through the use of smart contracts and consensus mechanisms. With blockchain, organizations can operate in a decentralized manner, with decision-making power distributed among all participants in the network. This can lead to increased transparency, accountability, and trust. Additionally, blockchain’s tamper-proof and immutable nature can help prevent fraud and corruption within the organization. However, it is important to note that these benefits come with their own set of challenges, such as regulatory issues, security concerns, and the need for technical expertise.

    About the speaker: 

    Fabrice Lumineau is a Professor in Strategic Management at HKU Business School, The University of Hong Kong. His research investigates inter-organizational partnerships, the interplay between contract and trust in collaborative strategies, opportunism and ethical issues, and blockchain governance. He has published more than 30 articles in the top management journals, such as Academy of Management AnnalsAcademy of Management JournalAcademy of Management ReviewJournal of International Business StudiesJournal of ManagementJournal of Management StudiesOrganization ScienceOrganization StudiesResearch Policy, and Strategic Management Journal. Prof. Lumineau serves on the editorial board of Organization ScienceStrategic Management Journal, and Strategic Organization.

    Live webinar is open to all.

    Registration closes 7th June, 2023 at 10 am (eastern time)

    Hope you will be able to join us!
