More information on this seminar, including how to join online, will be available nearer the time.
Davide’s research primarily examines interrelations among organisational identity, culture, and strategy in times of change. He has used several cases of – successful and less successful -organisational change to examine how claims and beliefs about “who we are” or “who we want to be” influence how change is embraced (or rejected) by the organisation, and how history, memory and culture affect the process. He has also investigated how designers work and how they contribute to strategic change and innovation, and he is interested more generally in cultural-cognitive processes influencing how new objects and practices come to be. His research has been published in Administrative Science Quarterly, Academy of Management Journal, Academy of Management Review, Academy of Management Annals among others. He is also a co-editor of the Oxford Handbook of Organizational Identity.
He has served as Associate Editor for the Journal of Management Studies (2010-2013) and sits on the editorial board of the Academy of Management Journal, Academy of Management Review, Academy of Management Discoveries, the Journal of Management, the Journal of Management Studies, and Strategic Organization. He served as Chair of the Organization and Management Theory (OMT) Division of the Academy of Management, and Representative-at-Large for the Managerial and Organizational Cognition (MOC) Division.
