Please note: The event is currently on summer break and will be back starting October 25. The October speakers and their research topics as well as the participation link will be announced on this page in due time as usual.


The Faculty of Business Administration has been known as WEIDEN BUSINESS SCHOOL since the beginning of the winter semester 20/21. Internationalization, digitalization and diversification - these are just some of the reasons why OTH Amberg-Weiden has launched the WEIDEN BUSINESS SCHOOL. In particular, the progressive internationalization and the taking up of digital future topics as well as current research results will thus become more visible to the outside world.

Instead of a ceremonial renaming, which would not be possible with a clear conscience due to the corona pandemic, the faculty celebrates its new name with a virtual lecture series. At research@WEIDEN BUSINESS SCHOOL, master's students present their mastertheses and research work and also provide interesting insights into their experiences and scientific findings.

The virtual lecture series has established itself with one event per month and is always continued on the last Tuesday of the month. Attendance is open to all interested parties. So feel free to participate via the link provided under Participation in the event. We look forward to welcoming you virtually!

Program from May 31, 2022

Prof. Dr. Matthias Lederer, Professor of Business Informatics at the WEIDEN BUSINESS SCHOOL, will welcome you at the beginning of the event and will moderate it.

Paul Wolf, a graduate of the Digital Business master's program, will present on hir master's thesis on „Development and Classification of Best Practices
for Scrum Large Corporations – a Theoretical Analysis and Practical Implementation by the Example of a German High-Tech Company".
The lecture will be held in German.

Summary of Master's Thesis:

Scrum is becoming increasingly popular in practice - from software production to emergency rooms, Scrum is used as a framework for agile collaboration. Despite Scrum's popularity, most companies adapt the framework in practice. In the course of the work, 165 such adaptations ('Best Practices') are extracted with the help of a Systematic Literature Review and evaluated with regard to their effort/return quotients. 35 of the adaptations found are applied alongside 5 newly created Best Practices in an agile transformation of a large German company and examined on the basis of a points system with regard to their implications for future applications. 

Mr. Wolf will be happy to answer your questions after the presentation, which you can ask via chat function during the presentation or via microphone after the presentation. You are cordially invited to join in the discussion.
