- Most recently, I have finished a 3-year longitudinal data collection with my co-author Georg Windisch on a strategic change initiative by a global engineering company. This ethnographic data collection promises two major insights: (1) we are able to identify drivers that cause failures of strategic change at the organizational level, and (2) we provide first insights into how employees may adapt their role identities to support organizational change.
- Second, my co-author Elia Giovacchini and I conducted a fourteen year longitudinal case study a start-up to distinguish how identity affects the initial formation and adaptation of strategy when operating as a hybrid between for profit and open source goals. In a related paper, co-authored with Philipp Bubenzer and Elia Giovacchini, we develop a conceptual model of business model innovation based on organizational identity.
