LiU's strategic plan, collaboration is an important part of the university's
future development. The plan states that LiU will promote increased mobility at
all levels and between different sectors of society, and that LiU will
stimulate innovative arenas for collaboration with external and internal actors
to develop sustainability, utility and entrepreneurship as university culture.
We are also to meet the need for sustainable social development through
increased collaboration with companies and other actors, and this is reflected
in our educational offering.
Research and education
My research focuses on the management of knowledge intensive multinational companies. One strand of this work has examined the ways in which knowledge intensive multinationals identify innovative practices in their international operations and subsequently diffuse these across the firm. Other strands have investigated the influence of purchasing strategies in the automotive industry, aircraft industry as well as the telecommunication industry and the management of innovations, supply chains, resources and related strategies during periods of changing landscape.
I am supervisor for four PhD candidates as main or co-supervisor. Previously I was for example responsible for courses in strategic management of technology and markets, courses in knowledge management and scientific methods. I am on regular basis participating in different PhD-courses.
