      Research projects

      OrgVisionPro: Automated organizational design and optimization
      Sponsor: Innosuisse (Swiss Innovation Agency)
      Team: Michel Bierlaire (PI), Rico Krueger (PM), Tim Hillel (PM), Melvin Wong, Nour Dougui
      Period: October 01, 2019-June 30, 2021
      This project, joint with CLEAP S.A., is will develop advanced analytics algorithms to propose organization design (OD) scenarios based on the existing situation, constraints, and future needs of a business. These scenarios will support organizations in shaping their future by optimizing their structure and operating models.
