Successful publication for an Institute of the University of Liechtenstein

A study by the Hilti Chair of Information Systems on challenges arising from changes in the management approach was published in the February issue of the MIT Sloan Business Review. The Sloan School of Management of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology is rated as one of the world’s leading business schools and their science journal as one of the most prestigious scientific magazines.

The study “What Makes Change Harder – or Easier” is by Professor Jan vom Brocke, holder of the Hilti Chair of Business Process Management at the Institute of Information Systems, assistant professor Theresa Schmiedel at the Hilti Chair, and Markus Spiegel, a partner of Schaffer Consulting in Stamford, Connecticut. 

They investigated why transformation initiatives in organisations often meet with little success. One result of their research is that methods of corporate management are associated with subliminal values and basic assumptions. These anchored corporate cultures sometimes conflict with the new management approaches and hinder their progress. In their study, the three authors provide recommendations on how corporate cultures can be changed and how new management approaches can be more successfully implemented.
