Organizational dynamics

We find novel solutions to global challenges through organizational dynamics.

The (Transformative) Organizational Dynamics research group broadly seeks to understand organizational change in response to digital technologies. We are located at the crossroads of organizational studies, digital innovation, and computational methods. We leverage the power of data analytics, machine learning, and AI to uncover patterns of transformation within various organizations as they navigate the rapidly evolving digital landscape. By surfacing such patterns, we aim to shed light on the profound implications that digital transformation brings upon processes, strategies, organizational structures, and competence portfolios within these organizations.

  • Transformative: Our research extends beyond transient trends. We are primarily interested in deep, fundamental shifts in how organizations operate and define themselves. This includes, but is not limited to, the exploration of how digital technologies disrupt established norms and practices, catalyzing a transformative journey.
  • Organizational: We focus on organized groups of people, whether they be businesses, nonprofits, or other entities, spanning a variety of sectors and industries. Our research aims to uncover how such groups – firms, public agencies, alliances, or ecosystems – function, adapt, and change in response to digital technology. Our interest lies not just in single entities, but also in the networks and interconnections that shape the organizational landscape.
  • Dynamics: Our work is dedicated to studying change over time within organizations. We analyze cyclical patterns, trends, fluctuations, and other temporal aspects of organizational behavior. Through our computational approach, we scrutinize how dynamics unfold over different time scales, from tactical organizational responses addressing immediate situations to the long-term evolutionary trajectories of organizations.
