Zusammenfassung Im Zuge der zunehmenden Digitalisierung gewinnen interorganisationale Netzwerke, Plattformen und Ökosysteme zunehmend an Bedeutung. Jedoch bleibt oft unklar, was mit diesen Konzepten gemeint ist und in welchem Verhältnis sie zueinander stehen. Dieser Beitrag hat daher das Ziel, diese Konzepte genauer zu fassen und die jeweiligen Ver...
Article
This paper proposes a practice-based perspective on how managers resource goal-directed networks in the public sector, especially those governed by a network administrative organization. While previous literature shows that network managers need to acquire and allocate resources in order to achieve network goals, little is known about specific reso...

In the most prestigious journals of many disciplines, female researchers are underrepresented. To better understand this phenomenon, we compare the proportions of female authors in all leading management and organization studies (MOS) journals, explore underlying gendered publication patterns, and analyze factors explaining differences between jour...
Article
Major crises such as the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic often trigger economic, political, and societal actors to rethink how economic activities should be organized. In Germany, too, the pandemic unveiled a serious shortage of supplies such as personal protection equipment, medical devices, disinfectants, semiconductors and pharmaceuticals, underlining...

Chapter
Using the theory of path dependence, this chapter increases our understanding of the hyper-stability of certain practices in health care as well as of the whole health system. Technological, institutional and organizational path dependences are based on self-reinforcing mechanisms that create such stability, making deviations from existing paths ex...

This essay examines how different individual and collective actors interpreted the initial weeks of the worldwide COVID-19 outbreak from the German perspective. During this early phase, knowledge about COVID-19 was quite limited and uncertain, which also influenced the ability to assess (potential) impacts. The analysis relies on twitter data and t...

The ongoing digital transformation will potentially change traditional health care practices fundamentally. However, change agents usually face serious challenges arising from the highly institutionalized nature of this industry. Using the gamification of glucose monitoring as part of diabetes care as an example, this paper focuses on strategies to...
Article
Contemporary works on entrepreneurial ecosystems (EEs) suffer from a lack of theorization. We address this problem by conceptualizing EE as institutional fields, which is an analytical construct that is already well-elaborated on in neo-institutional theory. This theory provides a processual lens that is sensitive to the role of both institutions a...

Preprint
The creation of a new venture is at the heart of entrepreneurship and shares parallels with project-based organizing: embedded in an institutional context, founders have to assemble a team that works on specified tasks within a strict time-constraint, while the new venture undergoes various transitions. Based upon a case study of the Berlin start-u...
Article
Die Anwendung von evidenzbasiertem Management stößt aufgrund der Komplexität der Realität und dem insbesondere im deutschen Sprachraum oft eindimensionalen Verständnis des Konzeptes an Grenzen. Mit Blick auf die evidenzbasierte Medizin verdeutlichen wir diese Herausforderungen und zeigen eine Lösung auf: die Reflexivität von Praxis, die in der Führ...

We investigate strategies to implement and scale digital platforms in highly-regulated settings such as health care. Despite considerable research efforts, these scaling dynamics are still not well understood. Based on a qualitative, comparative study (U.S. and Germany) of six digital health care platforms, we suggest two feedback cycles that contr...

Questions

Question (1)
Question
Dear all,
I have the following problem: I want to run a co-citation analysis of a certain set of publications. However, some of them are not part of the Web of Science database.
Is there a convenient way to include these publications and their cited references into a file downloaded by WoS in order to analyze all publications as a single sample?
So far, I have used VOS viewer for analysis by importing a txt-file that includes the WoS-listed publications. It seems that it is very complicated and error-prone to edit this file in order to include the missing publications and their cited references.
I am happy about any idea!
Thanks in advance and kind regards
Carolin

Project
Digital technologies increasingly affect the process of strategy-making – they impact how actors craft, understand, and execute strategies. Despite the impact of the ‘digital’ on strategy-making, strategy research on this topic is still in its infancy. The goal of this research network is thus to build a community of early scholars interested in the topic of digitalization of strategy-making, to develop a joint research agenda, and to stimulate high-quality research on this topic. Our network will draw on a strategy-as- practice perspective on the digitalization of strategy-making because this perspective proves particularly suitable to examine changes in strategy making based on the actual activities of strategy practitioners.
Project
Within this project, we aim to understand how health care provision in rural areas that suffer from (threatening) medical undersupply, e.g. in terms of doctors and other health care professionals, is organizied, e.g. with the help of new organizational forms. So far, we have focused especially on the German context.
Project
We aim to add to the theorization of entrepreneurial ecosystems. So far, we have drawn from institutional theory to study the projectification of ecosystems. Further projects with a focus on the Berlin start-up ecosystem will deepen this work.
