Description: 

Leadership in innovative organizations: What does experimental and behavioural economics teach us about how to “deepen” agile work? In this seminar we will discuss what companies can learn from behavioural and experimental economics about the human resource management. The focus of the seminar will lie on recent trends of modern workplace and workflow arrangements and challenges they may bring for employees productivity (e.g., hyper connectivity, agile work, team work etc.). We will search for and discuss the empirical studies from the lab and the field. By doing so, we will review the key concepts of scientific writing. The participants will develop their own research question and experimental design. An extensive feedback will be provided by the tutor and other seminar participants. The format of this seminar crucially relies on the vivid exchange of ideas and thoughts among its participants in form of discussions and presentations. Therefore, the participants should be motivated to attend all sessions, take an active part in group discussions, and present their ideas in front of the group, and write a seminar paper.
