Florian’s research is concerned with organisational agility, the ability of firms to sense environmental change and respond readily. His study explores how agility is enacted as a performance by the members of an organisation. It will focus on the digital infrastructures used to support organisational agility and identify social mechanisms causing this performance. This is researched in a case study with a British telecommunications services company.
