The mission of the Human Performance Management Group is to contribute to a humane design or redesign of work. This implies that our key focus is on the role of the human factor in operational and innovation processes. Next to this, we investigate organizational behavior, i.e. the explanation of psychological processes at the organizational, group, or individual level within the context of operations and innovation management. Finally, we aim at a fine balance between theoretical foundation and practical application. For that very reason, we have a strong as well as unique focus on Human Performance Management:

  • Positive view: optimization of performance, creativity, motivation, learning, crafting, engagement
  • Process-oriented: self-regulation, human decision-making
  • Humane: key focus on the human factor in (re)design of work
