Visiting Professors

Visiting professors

Visiting professors who participate in Enterprises for the Future integrate and advance our research with research from international environments. These professors, who have specializations in areas closely linked to the work of our various research groups, contribute to our research ideas, method designs, applications, and publications. Through our collaboration with the University of Borås, these professors participate in an international network and in a development programme for new doctoral students.

Professor in Change Management/Organizational Behavior, University of Twente

In trying to add value to customers’ lives, enterprise stakeholders (i.e., owners, managers and employees) behave not always in ways that benefit them all. Identifying blind or unwise behavioral spots of such actors within organizations is of importance to those who have the healthy continuity of firms at heart. In enterprises some of those perennial organization-behavioral challenges must be addressed on time, and various change-management interventions are available or being invented for this purpose. It is to this body of practically-relevant academic knowledge that prof. Wilderom aims to contribute with her research. Her current and past studies match very well with that of the Organizational-Behavioral (O.B.) scholars within Skovde’s Enterprise for the Future center. 

“Thus far, I find our cooperation refreshing, while in many ways Swedish and Dutch firm and university cultures do look alike. Please, try to get these promising O.B. scholars in Skovde some more research time, so that they and their students are better enabled to flourish, as intended, and the enterprises for which they (will) work as well.”
