Content and course objectives
All organizations need to address the same fundamental problems (providing information or distributing tasks). Compared to hierarchical, established forms of organizations, New Forms of Organizing (NFOs) rely on information technology to apply novel solutions to these problems.
In this seminar, we will explore different types of NFOs, such as Open Source Software Development, Holacracy and Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (DAOs). We will explore how NFOs work, as well as whether and how they are able to function better than established organizational forms. Further, we will deep dive into Blockchain-driven DAOs, which have recently gained attention in both academia and practice.
You will work in small teams to address a research problem related to a specific kind of NFO.
