Empirical Research Project - Digital Transformation (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Stefanie Habersang

wöchentlich | Dienstag | 10:15 - 11:45 | 16.10.2023 - 02.02.2024 | C 14.103 Seminarraum

Inhalt: For this group research project, you will be responsible for designing and implementing a research project centered around the field of digital transformation, with a particular emphasis on the ecological and social impact of these transformations. We will explore the exciting and rapidly evolving field of digital transformation and its impact on organizations. We will focus on how digitalization can lead to social and ecological transformation processes within businesses.The use of digital technologies such as artificial intelligence, big data analytics, virtual reality (i.e., the metaverse) or IoT (Internet of Things) is rapidly changing the way organizations operate and create value. As managers, it is essential that you to understand these trends and how to leverage them to create sustainable, socially responsible, and profitable businesses. You will create your own research question and explore the topic within your project. Exemplary research questions resolve around: - To what extent do digital transformation initiatives contribute to or hinder ecological sustainability, and what are the main trade-offs that need to be considered? - How can organizations leverage digital transformation to mitigate the environmental impact of their operations, such as reducing greenhouse gas emissions and waste? - What role do digital platforms and ecosystems play in fostering sustainable business models, and how can they be designed to encourage ecological transformation? -What ethical and social considerations need to be taken into account when using digital technologies to drive ecological transformation, and how can organizations balance competing priorities? - How can digital technologies be used to promote sustainability and environmental responsibility among employees, customers, and stakeholders? Course: This course consists of the following 10 parts: (1) discussing relevant theories in the field of organization theory and digital transformation, (2) identifying a gap or puzzle and formulating a research question, (3) understanding different qualitative research designs, (5) designing a qualitative study (data access and data collection), (6) analyzing and interpreting qualitative data using a grounded-theory approach (7) coding qualitative data with MaxQDA, (8) presenting and writing-up qualitative findings, (9) building theory from qualitative findings (10) ethics in qualitative research.

Inhalt: This course focuses on global supply chains as a key area for sustainable and responsible management. Global supply chains are implicated in some of the key grand challenges of our time including sustainable energy or food production or decent work and inequality. Global supply chains also play a key role in sustainable development. This course will focus on key sustainability transformations (see the framework by Sachs et al.) such as education, gender and inequality or sustainable food, land and water and link them to different supply chains. After providing a framework of different theoretical perspectives (e.g. managerial, political-institutional, systems), will conduct their own research to analyze how selected supply chains (e.g. energy, food, logistics) need to be designed and managed to contribute to sustainability transformations.

Research Project (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Monika Imschloß

wöchentlich | Dienstag | 12:15 - 13:45 | 16.10.2023 - 02.02.2024 | C 14.006 Seminarraum

Inhalt: The aim of this class is to conduct an entire research project on the intersection of entrepreneurship and marketing. To do so, the course has three pillars: a) Theoretical foundation: students will read, discuss, and present literature to obtain a theoretical foundation. b) Methodological foundation: students will get an overview of quantitative research methods with a focus on experimental research. c) Design and implementation of a research project in student teams, which entails: 1. Identification and formulation of a research question 2. Theory-based hypotheses derivation and conceptual model development 3. Designing an experiment and conduct the experimental study 4. Data collection (e.g., online experiment) & data analysis (SPSS) 5. Writing a research report. Further: This course will require intensive group-work. Existing knowledge in regression-based approaches is expected.
