Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

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.
