Overview

I am interested in strategy and entrepreneurship. My dissertation work explores the implications of competition between partially substituting technologies, where buyers may make a single choice, or acquire a portfolio of technologies to meet their range of needs. Other papers look at evolutionary search processes in corporate strategy, and the effects of policy on entrepreneurial decision making. Preferred methods include computational and statistical modeling.

  • MGMT101 - Introduction To Management

    This course is an introduction to the critical management skills involved in planning, structuring, controlling and leading an organization. It provides a framework for understanding issues involved in both managing and being managed, and it will help you to be a more effective contributor to organizations that you join. We develop a "systems" view of organizations, which means that we examine organizations as part of a context, including but not limited to environment, strategy, structure, culture, tasks, people and outputs. We consider how managerial decisions made in any one of these domains affect decisions in each of the others.
