I research organizations and management practices at Aalto University, Helsinki, Finland.

At the moment, I’m focusing on three streams of research

  1. Non-hierarchical organizations – the paradox of managing without managers [read project description]
  2. Management practices and their impact on performance in companies
  3. Company identity and its impact on performance in companies

Regarding non-hierarchical organizations, I am looking for companies to study. If you know or work at a company that features e.g., self-organizing, high degrees of individual autonomy, bottom-up or emergent direction setting and intrinsic motivation as a driving force, we should talk. Or if you find this inspiring and would want to change the way you organize your company, please let me know…
