Markus Höllerer’s work is broadly anchored in the phenomenological tradition of organizational institutionalism. His research interests include the dissemination and local adaptation of global organizational ideas – in particular heterogeneous theorizations and local variations in meaning – as well as the relationship between different bundles of managerial concepts and their underlying governance and business models in the public and private sectors. Recent projects focus on discursive framing and related research methodologies, the role of visuality and multimodality in processes of (de)institutionalization, intra-logic complexity, as well as novel forms of organizing and governance.

Markus Höllerer teaches across a diverse range of subject areas, including public management and governance, organization theory, innovation and organizational change, strategic management and control, management accounting, and corporate sustainability. Over the years, he has coordinated and taught at undergraduate, graduate, and executive level in both German and English languages.
