Room: DAL/2Ø.040

Generally speaking, my research focuses on how new management systems and tools are implemented in public and private organisations. Of special interest is the micro- and macro-processes that influence how e.g. corporate social responsibility, performance measurement, and lean management are translated from abstract norms to everyday business practices.

Primary research areas
  • Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)
  • Corporate Sustainability
  • Non-financial Performance Measurement
  • Supply Chain Management
  • Process Management
