Our research projects are mainly empirical in nature and are concerned with how management control is practiced in organizations. Current research projects address, for example, dynamic forms of planning and the management of uncertainty, business partnering by management accountants, integration via ERP systems, management control for environmental performance, or the operation of control systems in non-profit organizations.
Research lies at the center of our work. By means of publications in scientific journals and presentations at international conferences we actively contribute to the scientific discourse in the fields of management control, accounting and management.
We also participate in the research center “Accounting Theory and Research” [more]
