Management Concepts and Digitization

The management of a company is confronted with digital transformation in two forms. On the one hand, it is important to set up structures that ensure a systematic analysis of the opportunities and risks of new solutions opened up through information and communication technologies, especially in larger companies - for example by introducing new management roles such as Chief Digital Officers. In addition, the management system must be adapted to the opportunities and risks of new digital technologies – e.g. through agile organizational structures. This research field focuses on both forms. The aim is to question management practices and to find new approaches.
