Applied Management Methods
Managing the interlink of applied management methods and corporate success is a research objective for both, research and practice. Business consultancies often quote a positive influence of management methods on company productivity. Recent studies show that the difficult economic situation is prompting managers to promote and apply modern management methods to make their companies more cost efficient, which is still an important success criterion.
Management methods and techniques result from the interaction of practice and management research. The Institute of Business Logistics and General Management is conducting research since various years in the areas of applied management methods, such as project management, product development and human resource development in logistics or in benchmarking.
