He focuses on empirical research and attempts to develop new ways of understanding the role and effects of controls and financial information in organisations and society. He is interested in translations and interpretations made of (numerical) representations (e.g. as in budgets, financial reports, non-financial indicators and profitability analysis) throughout the contexts they help to illuminate. His interests include Intellectual Capital and Knowledge Management, Technology Management, Operations Management, New Accounting and Management Control. Jan Mouritsen is currently editorial board member of 22 academic journals in the various areas of management and business research including accounting, operations management, IT and knowledge management.
Anders Koed Madsen is Assistant Professor at Aalborg University Copenhagen, where he is part of the Techno Anthropoligy Reseach Group. Drawing on his background in philosophy, new media studies and organizational theory, Anders does research on the way new forms of digital data and analytical software set new conditions for the production of knowledge in public and private organizations as well as in academia. In order to explore this question, he is simultaneously engaged in experimenting with digital methods and anlyzing organizations working with similar techniques. Theoretically Anders is inspired by various strands of Science and Technology Studies as well as different versions of pragmatic theory.
