Om boka

Professor Nicolai J. Foss , Copenhagen Business School, is one of the most well-published and cited European management scholars. He has made important contributions to the study of strategy, organization, and entrepreneurship, for example, breaking new ground in terms of stressing the need for microfoundations and for embedding the study of innovation and knowledge in governance perspectives.This collection of Foss' recent journal papers articulates his unique view of key issues in the study of organizational leadership. The collection provides an opportunity to explore the work of one of the world's most influential academic management scholars, Nicolai J. Foss, in this collection of twenty new studies published by Nicolai Foss between 2007 and 2014. Foss has, over the past fifteen years, increasingly focused on the concept of knowledge. In particular, the growth, management, and use of knowledge are recurrent themes. Applications of this have taken Foss beyond strategic management into innovation and entrepreneurship.
A key advantage of the present compilation is that it invites the reader to use Foss's vision to see connections between the represented subject areas: Strategy, Entrepreneurship, Knowledge and Methodology.
