PP 1921: Intentional Forgetting in Organizations
Coordinators: Prof. Dr. Annette Kluge, University of Bochum and Prof. Dr-Ing. Norbert Gronau, University of Potsdam, Professor of Business Information Systems and Electronic Government
The objectives of the planned priority program are:
- To utilize the mechanisms of human forgetting for a technical and organizational context.
- To further develop the organizational theories existing to date as regards the question of how a fit between the processes, employees, technologies, and structures of the organization and the quantity of information that is generated internally and externally to the organization can be produced in which the information systems in organizations can be empowered to forget.
- To develop interdisciplinary new methods and transmission routes for organizations to find the balance between constantly growing quantities of saved information and a reduction in information by forgetting.
