The research covers organizations in various phases of development, using a variety of research methods across different industries, both public and private.
The organization of research at the department is fundamentally based on research projects and research programs that spans across three key dimensions: People, Organization, and Society.
To facilitate access to information regarding these projects and programs, they have been organized into two research themes: People in Organizations and Organizations in Society.
People in Organizations:
Organizations are people and people make or break organizations. This research theme is concerned with understanding the behaviours of people in organizations and how organizations affect the people and their behaviours and well-being.
Organizations in Society:
Organizations are instrumental in shaping society. Rules for society are to a large extent set and enacted by different organizations and individuals shape society through their participation in different kinds of organizations in e.g. the civil society. This research theme focuses on understanding the roles and actions of the organizations shaping society.
