Department of Organization

In our research we seek to identify and understand changes in working and business life. We focus on processes rather than on structure, on relations and interaction among actors rather than on the individual actor.


The Department of Organization's (IOA) research and teaching focus on organizational and managerial processes in private, public and voluntary organizations. We address everyday dynamics in organizations as well as societal challenges from an organizational point of view. Our goal is to create new knowledge about organizations, organizing and the organized, which is both of practical use, questions taken-for-granted myths and sets the agenda.

The Department of Organization contributes to the organization and management teaching on all levels of the CBS degree programmes. We also deliver teaching on HRM, project management, organizational psychology, strategy and qualitative methods.

"Understanding organization and organizing processes has never been more important. Our research address both the big patterns of an organized society and the everyday dynamics and challenges of doing things together."

- Signe Vikkelsø, Head of Department, IOA
