Message
I am an Associate Professor in the MBA Program in International Business, Graduate School of Business Sciences, at the University of Tsukuba, Tokyo campus. I am originally from France, but have actually lived and studied in three countries: I graduated from Grenoble Ecole de Management in France (BS, MS), hold an MBA from the Georgia Institute of Technology in the United States, and received my PhD in Industrial Engineering and Management from the Tokyo Institute of Technology in Japan. My doctoral thesis, titled “Beyond Deliberate Corporate Control – The Roles of Isomorphic Pressures, National Culture and Organization in the Institutionalization of Knowledge Management”, uncovered some of the institutionalizing forces that affect knowledge management and exist inside and outside the firm’s boundaries. My research has been published, among others, in Knowledge Management Research & Practice, the International Journal of Innovation and Technology Management, the Journal of Theoretical and Applied Electronic Commerce Research, VINE: The Journal of Information and Knowledge Management Systems, the Journal of Information and Knowledge Management, Open Learning: The Journal of Open, Distance and e-Learning, the Journal of Knowledge Management, and the Journal of Workplace Learning. My present research focuses on knowledge management, institutionalization processes, cross-cultural management, distance learning, and international economics. Prior to his academic career, I worked as Training Department Manager in the United States for a leading French manufacturer of packaging equipment and lines for beverages packaged in PET, where I developed a growing interest for knowledge management issues.
