Institut for Organisation
Organizational learning and adaptation are running themes in my research focusing on; a) sensemaking and sensegiving in organizations, as exemplified in my research on crowd safety management, and b) organizational improvisation. Another research interest is innovation and knowledge processes in organizations. This research formed the basis for my position as lead-developer of the executive program - Master in Leadership and Innovation in Complex Systems (LAICS), which took off in 2006.
I am the co-founder and CBS-coordinator of Copenhagen Center for Disaster Research (COPE), established in the autumn of 2012, in collaboration between Copenhagen Business School and University of Copenhagen.
From September 1. to November 30., my office hours are Wednesday from 2 pm. to 4 pm. This will usually also be the hours where I answer incoming mails regarding administrative issues and handled inquiries about supervision.
