Research Network

The IMO Academy support research projects related to the key issues in organization development like: leadership, sensemaking and community. The approach of research is based on the 'methodology of the evidential'. This means a focus on action-research. Every research project is embedded in a group of participants in which the progress of the research can be communicated by using a forum. People can be invited to join the group. As soon as you register yourself and your registration has been approved you can enter the community part of the website.

Research projects, in which people work together, can be found on the IMO Online Network.  There you can register and become member of a research group. When you already have an account for the IMO Academy you have to register for the this Network again. But of course you can use the same credentials.
