Jochem’s main research focuses on processes of institutional change, revival and persistence. Current projects examine the revival and persistence 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 Academy of Management Annals, Business History, in the Economics of the Craft Beer Revolution (Palgrave Macmillan) and in Constructing Identity in and around Organizations (Oxford University Press). He has also published on social venture legitimation in Academy of Management Journal.
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 and collective memory in craft-based field transformation and symbolic communication, a meta-analysis of gender differences in academic research performance and the development of sustainable livelihoods in rural Indonesia.
Since 2014, Jochem has taught 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 has also co-ordinated 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 teaching on a variety of subjects that relate to the sociological side of business and organisation and covering issues around organisational culture, trust, managing across borders, sustainability and strategic transformation. He has designed and delivered programmes for a variety of large organisations including Barclays and HSBC. He is currently the academic lead for the Chief People Officer programme that CJBS is offering in partnership with Emeritus.
