The Chair supports research projects along three levels: the organization, the IT project and the individual.

The Organization

Studies at this level examine how IT can help better integrate an organization’s business processes. Studying organizational characteristics and the different management approaches that influence the implementation of enterprise systems is an important theme of this research area.

The IT Project

IT project level studies aim at the development of reliable and valid measures of IT implementation project risk, as well as the identification and assessment of risk management approaches. The management of conflicts that may arise during implementation is a parallel theme that is also studied within the scope of this research area.

The Individual

Research in this area studies the implementation of IT as experienced by individuals in organizations. The themes examined include user participation in IT projects, the concept of utilization of IT along with its antecedents and consequences, conflict, as well as the design and use of decision-aiding tools.
