Last year we announced the creation of the Paul-Tolchinsky – Award at the EODF2017 annual conference in Dortmund. The purpose of this award is to recognize an Organisation Design practitioner who has gone above and beyond to freely share their knowledge, expertise, and methods with others.

• Invites less seasoned professionals to actively partner in “stretch” projects, work assignments and internships
• Contributes time and energy to make expertise more widely available
• Supports others’ ability to share their experience and knowledge with wider audiences
• Creates and makes accessible resources for those wanting to learn and explore
• Passionately demonstrates the belief that everyone in the community can make a significant contribution; has worked to ensure all voices are valued and heard.

At the organisation design annual conference in Budapest, we will learn who is the receipient of the Paul Tolchinsky Award.


At this year’s European Organisation Design Forum annual conference, we are handing out the first Best Written Contribution Award. With this award, we would like to recognize the individual or individuals (based in Europe) who have made an outstanding written contribution to the organisation design field of knowledge over the past year. Our Curatorial Board has selected three nominees, and we want to give you – our community – the chance to decide who should be the winner. All three nominees will be invited to our annual conference in Budapest to give a brief recap of their article, after which we’ll announce the winner.

The nominations are:

1. Fabrice Roghé, Stefan Scholz & Andrew Toma: Boosting Performance Through Organization Design
2. Karin Ahlbäck, Clemens Fahrbach & Olli Salo: How to create an agile organization
3. Lisa Gill: 10 components that successfully abolished hierarchy (in 70+ companies)
