Presentation

Signe Vikkelsø’s research focuses on organization theory, organizational analysis and the organizing effects of tools and techniques. Drawing upon cases from healthcare, psychoanalysis, and industrial production she has published in sociology of science and technology, psychology, CSCW and organization studies.  Her recent publications include a comprehensive Handbook in Classic and Modern Organization Theory (ed. with Peter Kjær, Hans Reitzels Forlag). She has just finalized another monograph ”For Formal Organization: The past in the Present and Future of organization theory” (with Paul du Gay, Oxford University Press). At CBS she is Heading the Department of Organization, and part of the Research, Innovation and Organization Cluster.
