Research on Organizational Paths (Pfadkolleg Research School)

Research Focus

Why do organizations become inert? How do organizational path dependencies emerge? How can technological paths be broken? How can a new path be created? Pfadkolleg scholars and internationally known path researchers add their expertise to the study program, which emphasizes theories and methods. With an interdisciplinary orientation, also on the part of the professors teaching the program, the Pfadkolleg is quickly becoming the international leading center for path research.
