Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

In this seminar, we will have a look at innovative organizations and discuss whether recent trends in information technology might have led to these changes. The seminar is structured into three major blocks: The first will describe new developments in IT, in the second, some examples of new organizational structures will be presented. The last block provides a more detailed perspective: We will in turn consider different variables of organization design, analyze how new organizational forms solve these design problems, and discuss whether the developments of IT might play a role in the observed trends. In addition to this substantive element, the seminar also serves as a training in writing scientific papers, to prepare you for writing the Master thesis.

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. Active participation in classroom discussion will also be evaluated.

The total score for the course is therefore based on:
Seminar paper (55%)
Presentation (20%)
Discussion paper (15%)
Active participation in discussions (10%)

All papers submitted will be checked for plagiarism and rules the rules published on our homepage will be strictly enforced.
