Welcome at the Center for Management Research.

The Center for Management Research (DITF-MR) is part of the German Institutes of Textile and Fiber Research Denkendorf (DITF), the largest textile research center in Europe.

Under the direction of Prof. Dr. Meike Tilebein DITF-MR develops new concepts, methods and tools for strategic and operational management as well as new organisational structures in and between enterprises.

The emphasis of the research lies in the fields:

The research covers the whole textile value added chain, starting with the producton of fibers up to marketing of the final product. Regarding the emerging importance of technical textiles the integration of textile enterprises into knowledge oriented networks of high adding value is in the special focus of DITF-MR's research and consulting activities.
