Sylvia Schweiger is a PhD candidate and Research & Teaching Assistant at the Institute of Human Resource & Change Management at the Johannes Kepler University Linz, Austria. She received her master degree (MSc) in System Dynamics from the University of Bergen, Universidade Nova de Lisboa and Radboud Universiteit Nijmegen, and her diploma degree (Mag.) in International Development from the University of Vienna.

From 2012 to 2014, Sylvia Schweiger participated in the European Master’s Programme in “System Dynamics“ which builds on the strengths of four leading universities: the University of Bergen (Norway), the New University of Lisbon (Portugal), the University of Palermo (Italy) and Radboud University Nijmegen (the Netherlands). System dynamics was developed at the Sloan School of Management des Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) as a method to uncover and understand endogenous sources of system behavior, i.e. it focusses on feedback processes. The essence of the discipline lies in seeing interrelationships rather than cause-effect chains. It takes the philosophical position that feedback structures are responsible for the changes we experience over time. In addition to uncovering the sources of a certain behavior, system dynamics models also help identifying and testing potential thresholds and coping strategies. System dynamics has long been recognized as a way to help make better decisions when confronted with complex processes such as organizational change.

In 2008, Sylvia Schweiger graduated from the diploma programme in "International Development" at the University of Vienna. This diploma programme centers on the history, organisation and conception of development studies as well as on its historic-geographic structures and implementation. In addition, Ms. Schweiger acquired strong project management, planning and analytical skills including proficiency in regional and historical process analysis during this diploma programme.

Her research and teaching activities at JKU Linz lie in the field of organizational change with a special focus on sense making and sense breaking, leadership, team development and group dynamics, as well as resistance to change, path dependence and organizational learning.
