Shannon Hessel

Assistant professor, Ph.d.
“My research and teaching address collaborative group work practices, innovation management, and the role of aesthetics and arts-based practices in processes of business value creation. My PhD thesis develops our understanding of a special form of collaborative work in which arts ensembles and innovative groups engage, which I call “ensembling.” I have coauthored two Harvard Business Press books on CEO and IT leadership, as well as several Harvard Business School teaching cases. My expertise using the Harvard Business School case-teaching method and as a theatre arts professional inform the way I create a dynamic, interactive classroom experience.”

Lena Olaison

Assistant Professor, Ph.d.
“My PhD dissertation ‘Entrepreneurship at the limits’ takes on the one hand issue with the current, dominant images of entrepreneurship, and points, on the other hand, to new ways of redefining and exploring the entrepreneurial process. Taken together, my research is written within the European school of entrepreneurship, drawing on organisational philosophy and art for theoretical as well as methodological development. In a business school we study organisations (understood in its very broadest sense) and for me this means an emphasis on the empirical and my research methods are based on organisational ethnography.”
