Research focus

Maximilian Heimstädt’s research focus is on organizational openness and the question of more transparent and participative forms of organizing. His doctoral thesis at the Department of Management at 'Freie Universität Berlin' explores the institutionalization of open government and open data in large municipalities (New York, London, Berlin). At the RMI, Maximilian Heimstädt pursues research on issues concerning the digitization of corporate strategic processes. Accordingly, he holds the "Strategy" Bachelor’s seminar together with Prof. Guido Möllering. Inspired by his work on a textbook on organizational openness, he also offers a course titled "Organizing Openness".
