Workshop on agile – lean – socio-technical: concepts and procedures for work and organizational design in digitization processes, Oct 1, 2019, Dortmund/Germany
In the present era of digitalization, agile and lean management oriented approaches are widely salient in current debates on work organization while there is a selective (re-)discovery of socio-technical approaches. There is a large number of published conceptual sources and the range of practical implementation approaches is even much more diverse and hybrid. In order to contribute to a clarification of concept focuses and differences, the Institute for Work, Skills and Training (University of Duisburg-Essen) and the German Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (BAuA) jointly organized an expert workshop on October 1, 2019 in Dortmund, Germany.
