Management Professor. Chair of Management and Organization, Abo Akademi University.
Believes disruption is one of the most misunderstood concepts in management thinking and that it’s an umbrella, not a scalpel.
Thinks ugly can be a brand strategy and that imperfections in a product can be valuable.
“You’ll always be far more likely to be disrupted than being a disruptor.”
Believes creative ideas don’t die in organizations because of criticism – they die because of a lack of response.
Thinks great leaders focus on building a caring culture.
“An organization that cannot unlearn will never become a learning organization.”
Believes unlearning is as important as learning.
Thinks as the world becomes easier to measure, unmeasurable things like trust, style, and fandom become more important.
