The theme for our 2018 EODF annual conference is Designing for Business Ecosystems. With this topic, we would like to open our perspectives on Organisations and see them in their interactions and connections with their closer and wider circle of Customers and Partners. We invite you to bring your cases, be it solved or currently in progress of transformation, so we can explore together what we mean by Business Ecosystems and how we can best support them with knowledge and experience of Europe’s 100 top managers, HR Business partners and internal and external consultants of the field. All industries are fast changing due to the digital revolution and the real market differentiator can be the speed your company gets into making the most of its advantages.

There are three #subtopics. We are curious to discover how the changing nature of #connectivity, as technology is unbounding and reconnecting players, has an effect on work and creates new possibilities for Business Ecosystems to thrive, how #digitalisation and automation create a sustainable human and AI Ecosystem, and how #platforms simultaneously enable and support Ecosystems.

You can learn from and get inspired by a selected number of Keynote speakers while they share their journey, struggles and successes on the road of this transformation. We will create learning opportunities, where you can discuss more in depth the way others changed their mindsets and everyday routines to step into and harvest the opportunities the digitalised world offers us. As a tradition, a large part of our conference is Open Space – where you can post your current issues, questions and have a group of experienced and highly professional people with a diverse background work on the solutions.

Bring your thoughts, questions, cases, doubts and let’s have a great conference again!








Our mission is to build and advance the community, practice, and strategic role of Organisation Design since 2010. We rotate our conference each year to a new EU country to build membership and generate interest in the topic.

1. Opportunities of Digital Transformation, Seeing and Thinking Organisation Design, delivered by EODF Board members, Julia Flower and Stuart Wigham

In this introductory workshop, we explore the relationship between the individual designer and organisation design. We will talk about different frameworks and models, as a way to explore what designing organisations means to each of us, in a very personal and hopefully fun way.

2. Designing Organisations as a Platform, delivered by Eugenio Battaglia and Cristobal Gracia

A moment of training and strategic thinking at the same time: one deep day in which you will learn few of the fundamental tools of the Platform Design Toolkit, the most comprehensive methodology for the design and prototyping platform strategies. From business strategy to change management, from small startups to large corporate, no matter if in the public or private sector, the Platform Design Toolkit is used by thousands of practitioners around the world. You’ll be able to apply it directly to your product, a process or whole organization, a new service, a startup idea or to explore a market that you care about.

Budapest, the capital of Hungary, can be a sweet surprise for any traveller. Many of us know about the beautiful Danube river, the fabulous architecture, the World Heritage Buda Castle, which by the way is only 10 minutes walk from our venue.
But Budapest can offer so much more! Get panoramic views from the city centre (the Budapest Eye) or from the hills of Buda (the Zugliget Chairlift)! New and upcoming art galleries and design stores, baths and spas, ruin pubs, room escapes, flea markets, natural caves, and of course there is the food. You MUST try the food!


The Magyar Telekom in Hungary is graciously hosting our conference at their facilities in Budapest.
Address: Telekom Headquarters, Budapest, Krisztina krt. 55, 1013 Hungary
