Abstract (German)

Im besonderen für die Neuproduktentwicklung ist interdisziplinäre Zusammenarbeit oft ein Erfolgsfaktor. Kooperationsprobleme können im speziellen zwischen Personen mit technischem und Personen mit wirtschaftlichen Hintergrund hemmend wirken. In diesem Forschungsprojekt wird untersucht, ob sich Einstellung gegenüber der anderen Disziplin (und gegenüber der Zusammenarbeit) im Laufe einer gemeinsamen Tätigkeit ändert bzw. verbessert.


Abstract (English)

Especially in New Product Development interdisciplinarity is often the only way to do it. Problems concerning the cooperation between people with technical background and those with business background are often obvious. In our research we focus on the attitude people have towards the other discipline and try to find out how cooperation is able to change this (often stereotypical) attitudes.
