Forschungsvorhaben

Die rasche Digitalisierung hat die Unternehmenspraxis und Organisationskultur auf der ganzen Welt radikal verändert. In der aktuellen Ära der Industrie 4.0 sind Organisationen zunehmend daran beteiligt, Chancen zu erkennen und Bedrohungen zu evaluieren, sowie Kernpraktiken der Digitalisierung zu übernehmen, um ihre Wettbewerbsposition zu behaupten. Folglich hat die Digitalisierung einen grundlegenden Platz in der Strategie einer Organisation eingenommen. Der Trend zur Digitalisierung ist für die kleinen und mittleren Unternehmen (KMU) von Bedeutung, hauptsächlich aufgrund ihrer besonderen Merkmale und begrenzten Kapazitäten. Jedoch fehlt Kenntnis über die zugrunde liegenden Mechanismen der Digitalisierung in KMU. Vor diesem Hintergrund zielt das Projekt darauf ab, die digitale Transformation in KMU sowohl theoretisch als auch empirisch zu untersuchen. Dieses Projekt untersucht empirisch die Auswirkungen der Digitalisierung und ihr Zusammenspiel mit den organisatorischen Attributen für drei Schlüsselaspekte in KMU: Innovation, Internationalisierung und Resilienz.

    [BibTeX] [Abstract] [Download PDF]
    This workshop discusses organizational resilience and resilient infrastructures by uniting researchers, professionals, and experts from various disciplines. Workplace studies and organizational settings have always been an integral theme in computer-supported cooperative work (CSCW) research. This workshop hopes to broaden this research horizon by overlapping the multidisciplinary perspectives of resilience and crisis research with human-computer interaction (HCI), CSCW, organizational, and business studies. The COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent physical and social constraints have been detrimental to the activities of different organizations, especially to small and medium enterprises (SMEs). SMEs must recognize and search for opportunities to adapt to this crisis by developing resilient organizational infrastructures. These adaptations can be crucial to overcoming the current disruptions challenging the continued existence keeping in view the intrinsic diversification of various business and industrial sectors. How organizational infrastructures can be designed to instill resilient properties like adaptive capacity, self-adjustment and continuity? We intend to focus on bringing this discussion under the umbrella of CSCW to explore the potentials of collaboration and cooperative work in organizational infrastructure. Through this workshop, we offer research prospects by applying organizational resilience theories to study organizational infrastructure and infrastructuring activities, which can be used for their prospective transformations into resilient infrastructures.

    Digitalization is an ever-increasing phenomenon and is being focused in all prominent research communities around the world. When it comes to businesses, the concept of digitalization can have its far-reaching impacts due to the diverseness of business and distinctiveness of their capabilities. Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) are of dire importance in this research arena, due to their immense share in global economy and organizational characteristics. The concept of digitalization needs special attention for these business specimens. Technology adoption models need to be built which can transcend the utility of digitalization and digital technologies in SMEs. We propose a hypothetical technology adoption model for increasing the digital maturity in small and medium business organizations and further proposing that matured digitalization will lead to centralized business continuity infrastructure which can boost the organizational resilience.

    Das Thema Sicherheit durchzieht sowohl das Leben Einzelner als auch das Zusammenleben von Personenkollektiven. In diesem Heft geht es um das Wahrnehmen und Wertschätzen sowie die Stabilisierung von Situationen, in denen Gefahren und Risiken reduziert werden. Außerdem stehen die Instrumentarien, Methoden und Maßnahmen im Fokus, mit denen Sicherheit geschaffen werden soll. Besonders in komplexen Systemen wird Sicherheit zu einem schwierig zu fassenden Thema, zu dessen Begleiterscheinungen beispielsweise die Beschneidung von Freiheit zählt. Sicherheit wird in allen Lebensgebieten relevant – von der Politik, Gesellschaft, Wirtschaft und Recht über die Arbeitswelt bis hin in Medien, Technologie, Ökologie und Medizin. Zudem ist der Umgang mit Sicherheit landeskulturell geprägt.
