My research stretches across the field of management and mainly covers three areas: (1) the formation and coordination of project-based relationships and networks; (2) global service sourcing and geographic knowledge services clusters; and (3) the role of multinational corporations in promoting sustainable development and global institution-building. I have done field research in different countries, including Germany, the U.S., Romania, China and Kenya; and industries, including film production, the automotive industry, the coffee industry, and global business services.
Professional and Service Activities
I am ad-hoc reviewer for several management journals, including Strategic Management Journal, Journal of International Business Studies, Journal of Management Studies, Organization Studies, and the Academy of Management Perspectives. I am member of the Academic of Management, the Academy of International Business and the European Group for Organizational Studies. I am further affiliated with the international Offshoring Research Network (ORN), based at Duke University. As ORN partner I co-moderate discussion groups on offshoring and outsourcing on XING and LinkedIn, and have been involved in corporate advisory projects and practitioner workshops, e.g. in collaboration with the Conference Board and the International Association of Outsourcing Professionals.
