Organization design is a field that is concerned with both theory and practice. The theme of the Organizational Design Community’s 2013 annual conference – Making Organization Design Knowledge Actionable – was chosen, however, to recognize that theory and practice do not always come together successfully. The researcher-practitioner “gap” is still a problem in our field, and organization design will not be able to realize its full potential until this gap is closed. ODC viewed its 2013 conference as an opportunity to bring together a group of individuals who are interested in making organization design knowledge actionable and to engage in a focused dialogue. The results of the annual conference are the articles published in this Special Issue.
