TOM Society 2013

TOM Conference 2014

University of Southern Denmark, 6-8 June 2014


The TOM Society

TOM stands for Theoretical Organizational Models. We are a group of scholars who believe that models should be the heart of Organization Theory. For a number of years, we have met twice yearly in European cities like Barcelona and Oxford. After the last meeting at NYU in New York, the conference is now held in Odense, Denmark, for the first time.
