Our research focuses on key areas of leadership and organization in an innovation-driven economy, such as a better utilization of the knowledge, creativity, and, thus, the innovation capability of employees.

We follow a quantitative empirical research approach. Our objective is to offer significant scientific contributions, which find recognition in the review processes of leading international journals. At the same time, our aim is to offer companies new insights and practical tools to address key leadership and organizational challenges.
