Why Research Needs Practice (and vice versa)

Business research cannot be successful without gathering first-hand information from corporate practice. We need you to „see clear“. Practitioners are making the decisions in organizations and they run the show. But that’s only one side of the medal. Independent academic research produces findings and knowledge that, transferred back into practice, can make the difference and help organizations to get better in what they are doing! Here are a few reasons, why you can benefit from our research.

  • Academic research provides an independent view
  • Universities educate tomorrow’s leaders. The better we do our job, the better they are ready for their job

  • We use state-of-the-art statistical methods, yielding in analyses beyond correlations and bar charts
  • We can provide you with best practices and new ideas
  • Research helps to spot opportunities and threats
  • Research gives you an external perspective and encourages you to reflect your company
  • Research helps you to find out what you need in order to become and stay competitive
