In particular, we focus on organisational transformation from multiple perspectives and using a multi-disciplinary approach. First, we study idealtypes of organizational transformation: ideas (e.g., agile, sustainability, new organisational forms) that have the potential to transform organisations. Second, we research transformers of organisations: actors inside and outside organizations that hold the ability to transform both ideas and organisations (e.g., consultants, gurus, managers, professional service firms). Third, we explore conditions for (e.g., communication, identity construction, emotions) and effects of organisational transformation, including 'unintended' implications (e.g., exclusion, paradoxes of organising).
Informed by state-of-the-art research, our team provides courses in the Bachelor Business Administration (“Bedrijfskunde”) and the Bachelor International Business Administration, with courses on Organizational Theory and Management Consulting. We also run a Management Consulting specialisation as part of the 1-year fulltime Master in Business Administration.
