My research focuses on factors that impact capability building and transformation in businesses to meet digital, data-driven, business analytics, AI, and disruptive innovations.

I primarily analyze the role of technology-, industry-, and market-dynamics in organizational strategies, capabilities, innovation and R&D. Those dynamics have formed my current research in digital business transformation, the integration of digital technologies, data driven innovation, and AI into all areas of businesses. Such integrations will fundamentally change how leading and established businesses operate, create, and deliver value to customers.

Currently I lead three research projects related to digital business transformations and push the scientific knowledge boundaries forward.

Research areas

  1. Digital and data-driven innovation capability building in Swedish leading and established businesses
  2. Digital and data-driven strategies in Swedish leading and established businesses
  3. Organizational innovations for future AI and data-driven solution businesses in the value chains.
  4. Responsible academia and sustainable data-driven business and organization transformation for effective societies to meet the grand challenges.
