The seminar deals with selected topics of IT innovation research which analyzes the adoption and spread of new IT-based processes, products and services. Theoretical models which explain IT adoption behavior of individuals and organisations are paramount.


The seminar aims at analyzing selected research articles within this subject area. Moreover, students gain a deeper understanding of the key issues by evaluating additional literature. Presenting and discussing intermediary results in the seminar group helps students to learn how to structure and analyze scientific problems and how to systematically report them. Thus, the seminar can be seen as a preparation for writing one's bachelor thesis.
