How can we use experiments to learn more about organizations?
This course covers the various forms of experiments in strategy and organizational research. It provides an overview of the process of creating a research design.

A major aspect is the comparison of the different approaches to laboratory experiments in different fields. First, we discuss the experimental methods on a theoretical and practical level. We use well-known experiments as examples of advantages and limitations of the experimental methods. As the main topic, we will focus on recent experiments in strategy and organizational design. Students will participate by reading and presenting articles about interesting experiments. As the main project, students will determine their own research questions, review the corresponding literature and devise a proposal for a possible experiment.

Please be aware that student papers will be checked for plagiarism with the software TURNITIN. Students who plagiarize will fail this course.

Due to the extensive CoVid19-precaution measures, all lectures will be held remotely via online platforms.

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

1. Understanding the experimental method
2. Reading and evaluating experiments
3. Developing a research design for an experiment
4. Getting to know the prominent applications of experiments
5. Learning how experiments are used for the research in strategy & organizational studies

Please be aware that attendance during the first session of this course is absolutely mandatory. If students miss the first session without contacting the lecturer in writing (at the very latest until 24 hours before the present class' first session), giving a relevant reason/proof (e.g. illness=doctor's certificate) for their absence, they will be deregistered from the course and their place is automatically awarded to the next in line on the waiting list. After that, you are allowed to miss a total of 10% of classes (that's about 2.5 hours).

As major scheduling changes were inevitable due to CoVid19-precautions, attendance is no longer mandatory, but highly appreciated as of May 2020.
