He studies business dynamics, focusing on how businesses in developed and emerging markets change as the competitive environments change and, in turn, how the business changes contribute to ongoing corporate success or failure.

The SMS has recently launched an initiative using on-line media to increase the recognition, engagement, and impact of SMS scholarship. In this effort, the SMS has appointed Aija Leiponen (Cornell University) and Will Mitchell (Duke University and the University of Toronto) as SMS co-editors for on-line media innovations. This session provides an opportunity to present recent on-line initiatives at the SMS aimed at increasing promotion, access, and discussion of SMS scholarship. The session will also describe initiatives that are evolving in other settings that have potential to help the SMS and individual authors provide greater engagement with their work. We plan for active opportunities for audience questions and suggestions.
