Zusammenfassung

In dem Beitrag werden prinzipielle Überlegungen zur vergleichenden Erforschung von Transformationsprozessen bei der expliziten Bearbeitung von Vielfalt in Form des Diversitätsmanagements (DiM) angestellt. Aus der Perspektive der reflexiven Diversitätsforschung werden methodologische Vorsichtsregeln identifiziert. Dabei wird weder – wie im World-Polity-Ansatz – unterstellt, dass es zu einer inkrementellen Harmonisierung des Umgangs mit Diversität in Form eines ‚typischen‘ DiM komme, noch wird – wie im Multiple Modernities-Ansatz – unterstellt, dass lokale Formen des DiM notwendig bestimmten, lokalen Pfadabhängigkeiten folgten. Vielmehr wird eine methodologische Heuristik, ja im Grunde ein Programm zur Erforschung des Zusammenspiels zwischen globalen und lokalen Prozessen bei der Diffusion und damit Transformation am Beispiel des DiM in Unternehmen entwickelt.
