The Organizational Design Community is a global community of scholars, professional practitioners, and organizations devoted to developing organization design. The community serves as a platform for members to collaborate on current organizational problems in society and businesses. Since its inception in early 2012, the ODC has grown to include over 200 members. Valuable contributions to the international community include comprehensive journals and professional conferences.
As an active member of the ODC, LaScola also recently gained recognition as a Certified Organization Design Professional. The Certification program for Organization Design Professionals (CODP) is a new venture in partnership with the ODC, European Organisation Design Forum (EODF) and Organization Design Forum (ODF).
