Anna Stöber

I am a PhD fellow at MSC. Previously, I completed an MSc in Sustainability and Management at the University of Bath with a practice-theoretical thesis on the B Corp sustainability certification. I then worked as a change manager for a medical technology company for 3 years where I was (among other things) involved in a change process towards agile/self-organizing teams.

My PhD project aims to understand how alternative (in particular self-managing forms of organizing) are introduced into already existing organizations and how they can be maintained over time in such an environment I am especially interested in the role of employees in advancing and sustaining these developments.

Primary research areas
  • Organization Theory
