Personal profile


Understand how innovation and renewal can occur in interorganizational contexts with special focus on the benefit and opportunities for customers/users and the society (sustainable development). Application and development of complexity theory for the creation of successful change processes. Current research focus on circular supply chains and sustainable supply chain innovations. 

My vision is to contribute to a sustainable, equitable and learning society with knowledge and innovation that helps groups, individuals and organizations.

My scientific paradigm is based on complexity thinking and theory, and how insights from the complexity area (conceptual, theoretical, methodological) can facilitate increased adaptation and effectiveness in and among multiple organizations. The application of my complexity approach ranges from packaging logistics, supply chain management to change processes in healthcare.
