Jochem’s main research focuses on processes of institutional change. Current projects examine the revival of craft in organisational society, dynamics of business collective action, and mechanisms underlying socio-economic inequality. In his research, Jochem uses both quantitative and qualitative methodologies, including meta-analysis and fsQCA.
His work on the revival of craft in the Dutch beer brewing industry has been published in Administrative Science Quarterly while related articles have appeared in Business History, in the Economics of the Craft Beer Revolution (Palgrave Macmillan) and in Constructing Identity in and around Organizations (Oxford University Press).
Part of his ongoing work on business collective action in the alcohol industry around the issue of harmful alcohol use has been published in How Institutions Matter! (RSO, Emerald Insight).
Other ongoing projects that he is involved in include the use of history by Dutch craft brewery entrepreneurs, a meta-analysis of gender differences in academic research performance, gender (in)equality in professional tennis, the development of sustainable livelihoods in rural Indonesia, the legitimation of social enterprises in the Middle East, and schematic differences between market and professional institutional logics.
Since 2014, Jochem has been teaching International Business in the MBA and Executive MBA programmes at Cambridge Judge Business School as well as in the Engineering Tripos programme at the University’s Department of Engineering. He also co-ordinates the Global Business concentration for the MBA and teaches quantitative research methods in the Social Innovation MSt programme.
He has extensive experience with Executive Education. He has been leading the introductory module of the Barclays Compliance Career Academy since 2015 and also taught in programmes for other high-profile banks, as well as for the HNA Group.
Prior to joining Cambridge Judge Business School, Jochem was an ERIM PhD Candidate at the Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University.
