This PDW seeks to address the growing calls for more research on organization design. Organization design is concerned with the problem of organizing collective action, i.e., how to get multiple individuals with different interests and knowledge to achieve tasks collectively. As such, it draws on different theoretical foundations to address problems that have practical relevance, and new theory, phenomena, tools, and data provide great potential for future research. This PDW is designed especially for Ph.D. students and junior faculty interested in the subject, and will highlight the topics, tools, and triumphs of current and emerging scholars who have made organization design a part of their research agenda. The program will feature senior faculty who will offer their own perspective on new directions for design research and provide some insights regarding critical unanswered questions. The program will also include a snapshot of recently published design-related research as well as a primer on an up-to-date tool. Finally, we include numerous opportunities for interaction between panelists and participants throughout the PDW; in particular, we want to request abstract submission for participants to enter in- depth roundtable discussions with the organizers and panelists. Our goal is to provide both a platform to explore the area of organization design and a means to help develop the next generation of organization design researchers.
