Ren­ate Meyer’s re­search activ­it­ies at WU fo­cus on or­gan­iz­a­tional the­ory, steer­ing struc­tures and mech­an­isms, pub­lic sector man­age­ment, and new in­sti­tu­tion­al­ism, with par­tic­u­lar em­phasis on the topic of man­age­ment con­cepts. To­gether with her team, she looks at how man­age­ment con­cepts and ideas are cre­ated, how they develop, and why they change over time or dis­ap­pear again.
