Master Thesis
Benedict Lösser


How to unleash the full potential of a technology that is mainly used for incremental process improvement? How might process mining foster explorative innovation? How should process mining be embedded in an ambidextrous organization? – And how is all this linked to the organization’s BPM capability?

Undertaking a thesis on process mining for ambidexterity is an exciting opportunity to explore a cutting-edge topic that has the potential to make a significant impact on the business world. The concept of ambidexterity refers to an organization’s ability to balance exploration and exploitation activities, allowing them to both innovate and optimize their operations. Process mining is becoming increasingly relevant for organizations as it allows them to gain insights into their (operational) processes, but the full potential of this technology on an organizational level is not yet fully understood.

This is your chance to come up with your own specific research ideas combining two highly relevant but yet disjunct topics. By doing so, you will not only contribute to the academic discourse but also make a valuable contribution to practice. This thesis will challenge you to think critically, creatively, and innovatively to come up with unique ideas and solutions to real-world challenges.


There are several methodological options available to you. Qualitative (interviews, case study) and quantitative approaches (survey…) as well as mixed methods are feasible. If the research question is suitable, a design science research approach may also be considered. In any case, a rigorous analysis of the existing literature is expected, which will form the foundation for the further procedure.

I am curious about your ideas.


• Close supervision, with regular review meetings, feedback discussions, etc.

• Thesis can start immediately but should be completed within the next ±6 months

• Possibility of making a real impact through publishing in a scientific outlet

Next Step:

If your are interested, send your CV, transcript of records, and a brief desription of your motivation with a first research idea to Benedict Lösser ()

I’m looking forward to hearing from you! 🙂
