Title: „Intentional Forgetting: Motivational and emotional influences on intentional forgetting in organizations"
Abstract: Intentional forgetting is a tandem project of the University of Münster with the disciplines Organisational & Business Psychology (Guido Hertel) and Information Systems (Jörg Becker) which focuses on studies on motivational factors that can interfere or promote intentional forgetting in organizations. Intentional forgetting is operationalized by the extent of the utilization of information systems. Information systems provide users with relevant information. The research is about the means for designing an information system in that way, so that less relevant information can fade into the background (gradual forgetting). Thus, the use of information systems can save resources and increase the quality and speed of decisions by focusing on the essential decision criteria.
