In meiner Forschung beschäftige ich mich mit der Steuerung und Kontrolle von inter-organisationalen Softwareentwicklungsprojekten. Mein besonderes Interesse gilt dabei Veränderungen über die Zeit: Wie und warum werden formale Steuerungsmechanismen wie Verträge angepasst? Welche Auswirkungen haben solche Anpassungen für die partnerschaftliche Zusammenarbeit in der zwischenbetrieblichen Softwareentwicklung? Wie reagieren Projektmitarbeiter auf sich ändernde Anforderungen? Und was sind die Konsequenzen all dieser Anpassungen für den Erfolg der zwischenbetrieblichen Zusammenarbeit?  Diese Fragen adressiere ich in folgenden Teilprojekten:
