Organizational Research Group (ORG)
The Organizational Research Group (ORG) is directed by Prof. Florian Englmaier and Prof. Tobias Kretschmer.
It is funded through LMU's Investment Fund, endowed from the Excellence Initiative.
In ORG we want to study and quantify sources of persistent performance differences between firms by empirically identifying bundles of complementary activities and characteristics that drive performance differences among firms. To be able to do this, we gather a unique set of data on intra-firm activities and characteristics using a consistent and reliable method of data collection. We aim to establish LMU as a prime location to do quantitative organizational research and to showcase the dataset we are building up, the Organizational Observatory, through workshops, conferences, and an active visitors’ program. The combination of these activities comprises the Organizational Research Group (ORG). ORG is interdisciplinary in nature and the goal is for ORG to be a unique large-scale, long-term initiative providing an infrastructure attractive in the long run to many senior and junior collaborators. This carries the potential to position LMU as an internationally highly visible place to do truly innovative work on organizations.
