Session 1851 -
Open Organizing in the Digital Age

This panel session provides insights on the implications of open forms of organizing in the digital age. Digital technologies are transforming the practice of management. Based on exponential growth in processing power, connectivity and transmission of information, digital technologies are not only resulting in new products or (platform-based) business models, they are also enabling fundamental changes in how people work, collaborate, access information, or make decisions. In this context increased openness of organizations has become a force of change, requiring organizations to cope with greater transparency, enhanced upward and downward accountability and increased opportunities to raise voice and participate. By reinforcing the need to adopt more open practices, the digital age impacts fundamental choices firms make about how they are structured, organized and governed.
