Mission: Translating science to knowledge

 

Apemanagement’s® mission is to translate academic research from biology and the behavioural sciences into usable and practical knowledge, as well as learning methods that can be used to address everyday social issues.

 

The three main themes on which we are currently focusing are:

· management and corporate behaviour

· bullying

· choice of partner

 

 

Vision

 

Apemanagement® takes social behaviour as the basis for solving problems. Solving a problem starts with identifying its root.

 

One of the most important causes of problems is our own social behaviour. Often the way we try to survive in an organisation not only hinders our own performance but that of the group as well. But we seldom approach problems from the point of view of our own social behaviour.

The reason is that it is often too upsetting face up to how our basic behaviour affects the performance of a group.

It is also hard to consider our own role in the group because we have simply never been taught the skills this requires.

 

A solution is to look at social groups displaying similar behaviour and take these as a model. For this we use another social group that we know a great deal about: apes. Traces of similarities can still be seen in our behaviour. Apes can help us to decipher and understand our own complex social behaviour. They are a model for our social behaviour.

 

Apemanagement’s® mission is to translate academic research from biology and the behavioural sciences into usable and practical knowledge, as well as learning methods that can be used to address everyday social issues.

 

Additional to our mission we started in 2013 with scientific research studying bullying behaviour. Our objective is to understand the basic motivations of bullying.

Apes bully too, yet it never escalates. What can we learn from this?
