Areas of Excellence: a 360° expertise for an impactful Research

    The Future of Work

    The future of organising


    The current technological, environmental, social and political breakthroughs require organisational changes. Using a variety of research methods in various settings, this subarea explores how organisations adapt to the new challenges they are facing.

    Ongoing research projects include:

    • How do HR practices and work organisation shape the new workplace? How to organize for co-working?
    • How do digital technologies impact work organisation and organisational strategy, and what are the challenges to their adoption?
    • What are the new business ecosystems and how do they manage to articulate multiple stakeholders (e.g., how to integrate customer logistics)?
    • How do organisations respond to new claims for power, and strive to distribute power through alternative forms of governance (e.g., how to foster democracy in firms)?
