Abstract: 

This research used a constructive methodology to design an organization using a combination of organization design and results-based management approaches. Drawing upon the business ecosystems literature and practical experience, design principles were used to guide the design of the organization that produces and disseminates the Technology Innovation Management Review, a journal concerned with the issues relating to launching and growing technology companies. A logic model links the organization's activities to outputs and expected outcomes across multiple time scales. An integrated performance management framework tracks the organization's progress toward those outcomes and provides a mechanism to continuously improve the organization by feeding these results into new cycles of ongoing redesign. The results from the first six months of the organization's operation provide lessons and action items that demonstrate the potential of this approach for broader application.
