Introduction
There is allegedly a broad and multi‐faceted debate about the improvement and/or the optimality of the production and the development model that an organization should embrace in order to reach sustainable prosperity. This debate is relevant both at the micro-level (individual organizations or even business departments), as well as at the macro-level (e.g., regional clusters). There are however some common issues that are persistently rising: strategy and policy design, problem formulation, optimization, decision aid. The practice of operations research and information systems has largely contributed during the past to all the above issues providing compelling approaches and tools. It is the potential of the field that this special issue would like to exhibit, by highlighting paths that could result in valuable contributions for development and production.

Objective
Promoting the field of OR for development among industrial organizations and users of optimization.
