Management concepts from an organization studies perspective

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. In her new capacity as member of the FWF Supervisory Board, Renate Meyer replaces WU Professor Engelbert Dockner, who passed away in April 2017.
