Research Summary

Team-based strategic work among senior executives



My research centers on a study of organizational design for senior-executive work on strategy.  I examine the role of small groups that are tasked with resolving strategic issues, and I consider the effects of such team-based organizing models on strategic innovation and performance.  Primary data about organizing practices for this comparative case study comes from interviews---with senior executives and other managers---that I am conducting at 6 large corporations.  Outcome data comes from public filings, financial databases, and qualitative assessments made by interviewees.
