International Journal of

Organisational Design

and Engineering


Scope of the Journal

IJODE is a scholarly journal aiming at the development of organisational design and

engineering (ODE), defined as the application of social science, design science and

computer science research and practice to the study and implementation of new

organisational designs, including the integrated structuring, modelling, development and

deployment of IS/IT and social processes. ODE can be classified as a sub-discipline of

the discipline of information systems. However, ODE is not restricted to the paradigm or

the literature of information systems but is manifestly open to influences from

organisation science and computer science/engineering. IJODE intends to break down

the "either-or" mindset which still constitutes a major obstacle to the development of

strategic and operational thinking about organisations in the 21st century.

Subject coverage:

Topics covered by IJODE include but are

not limited to:

• Real-time organisation: the impact of realtime

information on organisational design

Organisational self-awareness: the increasing

feedback capabilities associated with the

implementation of informating artefacts in

organisations

• New organisational design principles and

rules: the co-evolution of design-by-decision

and emergent design

• Social networking: the study of social

networks and of networking applications as

catalysts of emergent design

• Visual management: the power of computerbased

artefacts in making emergent designs

visible

• New approaches to the integration of

computer-based artefact in organisation

design: autopoiesis, social infrastructures,

adaptive structuration

• Knowledge management: the role of

information systems in supporting emergent

knowledge processes

• The limits of organisational modelling: how to

integrate design-by-decision with emergent

design modelling

• Ethical issues: the limits of organisational

self-awareness arising from the new

modelling and technological capabilities

• Dynamic enterprise architectures: how to

adapt business architectural models to fit

emergent organisational designs

Organisational innovation: how organisations

learn and change through the misalignment

between planned and emergent design

• Fast-cycle information system development:

the continuous development cycle driven by

emergent organisational designs

• The impact of organisational design qualities

on the design of computer-based artefacts

Organisational strategy: computer-based

artefacts as drivers of strategy instead of

merely supporters of strategy

What the editors say

about IJODE

It is my pleasure to serve on the editorial board of

IJODE. This journal aims to contribute to a core

area in organizational design research. I am

confident that IJODE will have a significant impact

in the academic and professional community.

Yulin Fang

(City University of Hong Kong)

Organizations are increasingly computerized, and

whereas some of organizational information

technology may be conceived as utilities with little

competitive advantage, then strategies, emerging

business models and innovation rely critically on

socio-technical arrangements. I have decided to

support IJODE because I firmly believe that it will be

a highly valuable forum for academic discussions of

contemporary organisational issues taking the role

of computerization seriously.

Carsten Sørensen

(The London School of Economics)

Many disciplines are founded upon systematic

design and engineering. While handcrafted

buildings or airplanes are not acceptable for most,

many of us work in handcrafted organizations.

Organizational design and engineering aims at

creating professionally-crafted work systems and

environments. Since ODE bridges important gaps

between engineering sciences and business

studies, it is important to create an outlet for such

inter disciplinary research.

Robert Winter

(University of St. Gallen)

IJODE creates a unique bridge between areas of

research that are not well represented in other

journals, the part of social science that studies

sociotechnical systems and the part of computer

science that studies applications in organizations.

IJODE's emphasis on organizational design and

engineering provides a unique forum for addressing

important problems and opportunities that affect

the operation and success of today's organizations.
