Field of Work
Prof. Birgit Renzl focus is on Knowledge Management, Strategic Change and Leadership. She is interested in how organizations create and share knowledge, how they develop their strategies in a digital economy, and how leadership changes accordingly.

Based on theories of organizational behavior we analyze organizations, teams, individuals, processes, structures, and networks, and we include knowledge from other research fields such as psychology, sociology, and engineering.
