ERIM Research Clinic Organizing for Performance
Methodological and statistical courses emphasize the technical aspects of research, but do not address the question of what are good research questions for research in a given area. This question assumes center-stage in the current course. The course should give students a better idea of the kind of research questions that are important in research in organizational behaviour and human resource management, entrepreneurship and innovation, and business-society management, and of the research design suited to tackle these questions.
An additional goal of this course is to familiarize the student with the research that is done by top ERIM researchers (within and outside the ORG programme).
This course introduces the state of the art of research in the organizational behaviour and human resource management, entrepreneurship and innovation, and business-society management. After the introductory phase, students work in one-on-one consultation relationships with one of the lecturers to develop a research proposal that should reflect both an understanding of the kind of research questions that may contribute to the field, and of the research designs suited to answer these questions.
As a second part of this course, students will be introduced to the research that is done within ERIM over all programmes. This is done by a series of two-hour seminars given by ERIM members and fellows. In each seminar, recent research is presented. Attendance of these seminars is obligatory.
