Times are changing, and organisations need to change to keep pace. The Institute of Applied Work Science places a focus on organisations undergoing change and views them in their entirety.
Besides fundamental research, the members develop concepts to change organisations by analysing and shaping working processes and improving them through sociotechnical solutions. The researchers comprehend and develop expertise in change management processes and the associated interactions between the individual and the organisation. The research activities and research results form the basis of the advanced scientific training programme in the Master of Arts in Organisational Management. The course, which is taken while working, is oriented towards skilled workers and executives from business and administration.
