Personal profile

Research profile

I am Associate Professor in Management and Strategy, Department of Business and Management, Aalborg University (soon Busines School, Aalborg University) and member of the research group FIRM (Firms, Innovations, Relations and Managemement).

My research is on business development with focus on management, organization, and strategy - especially formulation and implementation of strategies in public and private organisations. I have initiated and completed a large study with more than 1700 organisations in Denmark and mapped their strategy work including their strategic focus areas, collaboration with stakeholders and involvement of managers and employees. The study includes both top executives, middle managers and employees.

Another research focus is on implementing new technology especially the interaction between digitalization and leadership including the impact of digitalization on the business model, the strategy, and how management can deal with the necessary changes in the organization. I have also conducted a qualitative study on implementing new technology in different organisations in the public sector.

I am part of a network in New Nordic Management and I am doing research in the strategic and managerial consequences of using volunteers in public organisations and associations.

I have been Study Coordinator for Master-programmes and I teach strategy and management on bachelor and master level.

At the department, I am PhD.-coordinator and Head of Section with staff responsibility for more than 40 junior and senior researchers.
