Field of Work
The Department of Operations Management researches and teaches about intra- and inter-organizational value creation processes. We address production as well as service firms from a strategic point of view. How can firms achieve long-term and sustainable success based on their value creation activities? Which strategic objectives exist besides economic profit? How can different stakeholder perspectives be considered when formulating strategies? How can the complex dynamics of economic systems be better understood?
In February 2016, Andreas Größler, born in 1967 at Lampertheim, Germany, took over the newly founded Department of Operations Management at University of Stuttgart. Previously, he was researching and teaching as an associate professor at Radboud University in Nijmegen (NL) for nine years where he directed the Erasmus-Mundus Program in System Dynamics, jointly offered by four European Universities.
