Rikke Kristine Nielsen, M.Sc., Industrial PhD fellow (April 2011-March 2014) explores the notion of global mindset as a dynamic capability for international strategy execution. Against the backdrop of an intrinsic case study of the strategy execution challenges of the industrial Ph.D. host organization, The Solar Group, Rikke follows the development of a managerial ‘group mindset’ as a collective frame of reference as a driver of international business strategy. The mixed methods research design is inspired by the notion of interactive research and home-culture ethnography placing a premium on creation of actionable practitioner knowledge while at the same time making a theoretical contribution.
