  Expertise:
  • Management: Organizational theory
  • Management: Strategy and policy
  • Management: Supply chains
Teaching Area:
  • MBA - General Management
  • Undergraduate - Management and Operations
Research:
  • Creativity, sustainability and cooperative governance
        My research is concerned with relationships between creative project performance and team composition, with project based careers and entrepreneurship, and with strategic issues of project team composition and performance for organizations like technology intensive firms, film studios and science based organizations. Because I am interested in general principles (rather than the specific insights provided by the case studies that dominate this field) I have focused on industries where archival data sets are available, such as basic research and motion picture production. I have extended my research to sustainability in complex supply chains, which is a natural outgrowth of my interest in inter-organizational connections and the effects of interdependency on sustainability and performance in complex relationships.
