Implementation and Performance Management

The Implementation and Performance Management (IPM) group aims to advance knowledge in the areas of implementation of new technology and work processes, integrating perspectives of both organizational performance and employee well-being (as both target and outcome). 

The IPM Group has a long tradition for adopting a human – technology centred approach to create benefits for customers and/or employees, such as better usability for products, more efficient work processes and safer environments. Our research has focused on occupational health and safety management, physical and psychosocial work and work organization and implementation of preventive interventions. The research targets a broad spectrum of industrial and service sectors including manufacturing, knowledge intensive work, facilities management, and health care. Examples of new research foci are applying agile stage gate models in manufacturing and implementing digital strategies, i.e. distance management and human-robot collaboration. 

Applying systems thinking and process methods, attention is paid to qualitative research, mixed methods research, and program development. The research focus is thus on development of participatory and multi-level tools and programs for (re)designing and implementing work related and organizational level changes in close collaboration with industry. Examples of such collaborations include Rigshospitalet, The Capital Region, manufacturers (large and SMEs), as well as engineering and management consultants.

Every second month we present the results of our ongoing research at the IPM Research Seminar, by offering TED-inspired talks on our most recent conference papers. In each session, we will guide you into a different field and present a variety of hand-on examples, tools and guidelines for combining expected performance and behaviour in the implementation of management processes. 
Are you ready to be inspired and join the conversation? The program below shows when & where we will present next, we are looking forward to meeting you there!
You cannot join us in person? No fear, we will live-stream and upload our presentation on our youtube channel:
