RoCC Management Insights

The latest management issues and challenges

The RoCC Management Insights platform at makes the latest and best findings (“insights”) of the HSG’s School of Management accessible to the general public and offers an opportunity for an active dialogue.

What are the central management issues and challenges that are currently being investigated at the HSG? And what answers and scientifically founded findings do the HSG professors offer?

The Responsible Corporate Competitiveness profile area, or RoCC for short, has created a new electronic platform – RoCC Management Insights – in order to make the latest and best findings (“insights”) of our School of Management accessible to the general public. It serves to promote the transfer of knowledge from theory to practice. With this platform in the internet, we would like to make a concerted effort to look for an exchange about central management issues with the general public, managers and private individuals, students and alumnæ and alumni.

At, professors represent their latest findings regarding the challenges of responsible corporate management in a multimedia way. They address a bandwidth of challenges, among them ways of generating value at a corporate level (Prof. Dr. Günter Müller-Stewens), the use of IT-based corporate steering systems (Prof. Dr. Robert Winter & Dr. Jörg Mayer),  the role of strategic management and financial control (Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Klaus Spremann), the possibilities of the visualisation of knowledge (Prof. Dr. Martin Eppler), the productive exploitation of organisational energy (Prof. Dr. Heike Bruch), the role of emotional value in family businesses (Prof. Dr. Thomas Zellweger), the role of path dependence in strategic energy investment decisions (Prof. Dr. Rolf Wüstenhagen), the role of diversity in top management teams (Prof. Dr. Winfried Ruigrok) and the impact of a bankruptcy insurance fund in the insurance industry (Prof. Dr. Hato Schmeiser).

The platform has deliberately been designed as a place of dialogue. Readers are invited to rate the findings, to comment on and to establish direct contact with other interested readers.
