Human Factors and Organisational Design and Management (ODAM)

The Organisational Design and Management (ODAM) IEA Technical Committee has a long history and came into existence in 1984 under the guidance of Professor Hal Hendrick. ODAM is concerned with a broad range of human and organisational issues within Human Factors and Ergonomics (HFE). These include work systems and job design, participatory ergonomics, organisational culture and technological change, alongside the development of tools and methods for work systems and sociotechnical systems analysis. Since 1984 ODAM has organised a series of 13 conferences oriented around these themes. The latest of these took place as a virtual conference in April 2020 in conjunction with the UK CIEHF Annual Ergonomics and Human Factors Conference and featured presentations from HFE researchers and practitioners across the World.

The aim of this special issue is to provide a platform for communicating the most up-to-date examples of research and practice within the field of ODAM. Please note that the call is not restricted to papers presented at the ODAM 2020 conference but is open to all submissions which fall within the broad scope of the call. Manuscripts are welcomed on, but not restricted to:

  • Organizational design and management / Macroergonomics
  • Participatory ergonomics
  • Macroergonomics in healthcare systems
  • Sociotechnical systems
  • Cross cultural issues perspectives of macroergonomics
  • Occupational health, stress and well­being
  • Organizational and technological change
  • Job and organization design
  • Psychosocial and work organization
  • Methods and tools for job, work and organisational design
  • Complex adaptive systems of Ergonomics/Human Factors
  • Simulation and modelling work systems
