The research agenda of the chair comprises central topics in strategic and human resources management.
Our special research interests include the strategic organization of firms (strategic alliances, joint ventures, project-related collaborations), the design of governance structures to enable and promote creative processes, different aspects of teamwork (diversity, familiarity, supervision/monitoring), as well as remuneration, motivation and incentives.
Typically, our research is situated in a specific industry context. Previous applications comprise car manufacturing, institutions of higher education and higher education systems, strategy consultancies, Internet start-ups, as well as the film and music industry. With these latter studies the chair takes part in the university-wide interdisciplinary research group "Cultural Production of the Next Society".
