Philosophy and Themes
I seek better explanations of
strategic and entrepreneurial processes by considering the institutional,
historical and organizational contexts in which they are embedded. In this way,
I strive to contribute to the strategy, innovation and entrepreneurship and family business
literatures by bringing into the foreground, contextual or background factors
that are often ignored, underspecified or treated as limitations or boundary
