Related Research Interests

My current research interests are resiliency, organizational behavior, and how companies respond to internal and external forces that signal impending business failure. My dissertation focus is to explore core behaviors of firms undergoing major transitions, especially how organizations’ culture and relational climates influence efficacy and responses to challenging business situations. This interest comes from my professional experience at high-technology firms over the past 25+ years across a variety of technical, planning, and operational roles. Simply put, the vast majority of high tech companies hit major inflection points, stall, and don’t recapture their former growth trajectories. What can we learn from the firms that do recover?
