The research group Economic and Social Cybernetics is dedicated to the holistic view of organizations and companies as open, socio-technical, economically and diverse networked systems. Our focus is on change management, organizational and corporate cultures, business model development and sustainability assessment. With an interdisciplinary team of psychologists, engineers, communication scientists and business economists, we explore the interactions of technical, economic and cultural factors in science and industry. The developed approaches for optimizing the triad of human - organization - technology are implemented and evaluated directly in cooperating companies. Our approach is based on cybernetic approaches and combines cybernetic methods with methods of empirical social research.
