Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

The main topic of the seminar is "IT and the performance of individuals, organizations and networks". We will consider how IT influences the behavior of members of organizations and their output, how this influences the organizational performance in the short run and from a strategic perspective, and how IT improves relations between organizations. All three areas will be covered both from a theoretical perspective and from an empirical point of view.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

Students must prepare written papers (in groups of at most two students) and present them to class. A first draft of the paper has to be handed in one week before presentation. Papers may be revised to create a final version (due at the end of the semester) after presentation. For each paper, two discussants will be assigned who have to prepare a brief (about one page) discussion statement on their colleague's work.

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

The goal of the seminar is twofold: the substantive goal is to develop insights into the effects IT has on organizations and their environment. Furthermore, students write and present their own papers based on scientific results, this will prepare them for their work on the master thesis.


Preparation and presentation of student's own papers based on literature, classroom discussion


Initial literature for each topic will be provided. Students are expected to perform their own literature research and include additional references in their papers.
