  • I teach degree and executive education courses in corporate strategy, business change, entrepreneurial strategy, and pharmaceutical and other health sector strategy, as well as Ph.D. courses in strategy & research methods.
  • I study business dynamics, focusing on how businesses overcome constraints to change and, in turn, how business changes influence firm and social performance. My current research projects investigate business changes in several industrial sectors in developed and emerging markets.
  • My site at the University of Toronto contains details about research, teaching, and service activities.
