My research interests revolve around sensemaking of organizational changes with narrative methods as methodological approach. My PhD research project with the title “Making Sense of Organizational Changes” seeks to investigate and illuminate how employees and leaders make sense of organizational changes in a Nordic bank. The Financial industry is changing and so are the banks. Hence, this research project tries to investigate how employees and leaders make sense of an organizational transformation and organizational changes more broadly. Stories, emotions, time and sensemaking have been the primary focus areas.
In addition, an interest has been in exploring and applying qualitative methods, circulating around ethnographic fieldwork and narrative methodologies. A special interest has been in exploring the role as ‘insider’, being employed in the researched organization.
