Good and bad control in public administrations

It took us some time but finally it is online first: My article with Meike Wiemann and Antoinette Weibel on good and bad control in public administrations shows that Management by Objectives have a positive impact on trust in the employer whereas Systematic Performance Appraisals have a negative impact. Thus, output control can be good in public administration but only if it is implemented in a useful way. Here you can find the article.



Diversity in Higher Education

Phillip Cinkul will present the project „Paths to a diversity-friendly university: development and implementation of demand-oriented and subject-specific measures“ at the 26th EAN Annual Conference. The conference takes place in Giessen from 20th to 22nd September 2017. The presentation is a joint work together with Anna Blank and I am really happy that we have the chance to present it. Phillip will tell some interestings findings and stories about my former work at the University of Konstanz. During the project, we tried to find out the needs and requirements of different „diversity groups“ and to implement measures „to help“ them. Doing so, we learned a lot … not only about some „diversity groups“ but also about how we need to understand diversity. If you want to know more, you need to go to the EAN Annual Conference and listen to Phillip’s talk.
