Collaboration at Management and Organisation

Management is at the heart of organizations. As a department, we operate in active interactive with the Finnish work life.

Our experts are active in the societal debate via local and national media, social media, and our own blog.

Our experts regularly intervene as speakers in their own areas of expertise, including mergers and acquisitions, change management, managerial work in times of continuous change, colleagueship, shared leadership, and leading oneself.

In our research projects we collaborate actively with organizational partners. Forms of collaboration include e.g. qualitative and quantitative research in organizations, interactions and dialogue, change interventions, feedback discussions and mentoring networks.

We operate in active collaboration with companies via partnerships and shared seminars. For example Professor Satu Teerikangas is part of Personnel’s professors’ network. We engage societally, e.g. Professor Satu Teerikangas is member of the board of the Turku 2029 foundation.

Our PhD students study contemporary work life. As an example, Kaisa Kukkonen studies the impact of artificial intelligence on organizing, Juho Vaiste focuses on the ethics of artificial intelligence. Elina Honkasalo focuses on means of recovery in today’s hectic work life, Anne Paavolainen studies the means of societal impact for scientific research, whereas Dennis Grenda studies skills required of managers in the digital era. You can see the list of graduated PhDs from this link and take a look at their theses.
