From strategy to organisational development - Practice-based excellence in research

The Research Centre for Strategy, Organisation and Digital Technologies is a central facility of ESB Business School. The professors at the Centre deal with current topics from the context of the transformation of organisations in this age of digitisation and internationalisation.

Main areas of research

The transformation of organisations in times of digitisation, sustainability and internationalisation is a central challenge for sustainable management. Central trends are fundamentally changing organisation, work and leadership and result in new demands on the design of strategies and customer relationships.

A key driver is digital technologies, which enable new forms of collaboration, decision-making and value creation in an international context. They are also a central factor for a stronger implementation of sustainability.

The result of this is a high demand for applied research in the transformation process towards a sustainable management of digitally transformed, sustainable and internationally oriented organisations. The Research Centre for Strategy, Organisation and Digital Technologies (SOT) at ESB Business School is addressing viable management in digitally transformed organisations in the following fields of competence:

Strategy and Market

Focuses on the design of strategies and customer relationships.

Organisation and Work

Addresses the viable shaping of organisational design, working environments, corporate cultures and leadership and in particular change methods (experimental organisational development, systemic change management).

Digital technologies

Focuses on the potential of digitisation to support decision-making in the fields of competence strategy and market as well as organisation and work.

Research activities in the Research Centre for Strategy, Organisation and Digital Technologies

The Research Centre for Strategy, Organisation and Digital Technologies is active within the framework of numerous research projects and research conferences.
