Strategic Organization Design

Lecture Strategy and Organization in Technology Markets

Prof. Dr. Tobias Kretschmer, Giulia Solinas, Ph.D.

Course Overview

The lecture "Strategic Organization Design" deals with how organizations (e.g. companies) should be designed in order to reach their strategic goals. Building upon the fundamentals of strategic and organizational concepts, the focus of this course is especially the interaction between these two fields of research. Based on the individual to company-level analysis, the course will answer questions such as how to design for innovation or how organizations could 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.
