Strategic Organization Design

Archive StampLecture Strategy and Organization in Technology Markets

Prof. Dr. Pooyan Khashabi

Course Overview

The lecture “Strategic Organization Design“ deals with how organizations (e.g. firms) should be designed in order to reach their strategic goals. Building upon teaching a basic understanding of strategic and organizational questions, the focus of this course is especially the interaction between these two fields of research. Possible questions that we will answer during the course are how to design innovative organizations or how organizations can adapt to a changing environment.

The goal of this lecture is to give students an understanding of the theoretical concepts to answer questions of organizational design and the most important methodological instruments available for analyses including econometric and case-based research methods. At the same time, theoretical concepts will be applied to real-world management questions
