Dissertation topic:

  • Stabilization of Organizational Routines as Path Processes? Analyzing the Role of Partner Routines in Interorganizational Product Development Projects The dissertation project examines the role and influence of organizational rules and routines on the development of interorganizational co-operations. Recent studies stress the inertial impact of routines and thus their relevance for success or failure of the partnership. However it is still unclear how and why organizational routines have an effect on the course of the co-operation process. Focusing on the processes of stabilization and penetration of routines, the project will analyse the underlying dynamics and the impact of positive feedback effects in joint ventures.
