My research and teaching revolve around three primary areas:

  • How to manage self-managing employees
  • What the relationship between stress and self-management is
  • How the relationship between employees’ subjectivity and the value-creation processes of organizations is understood in the theory about strategic human resource management and how the relationship is constituted in empirical settings
Primary research areas
  • Management of self-management
  • Strategic Human Resource Management
  • Stress-management
  • Management philosophy
  • General management
