Research interests

Jatinder has a keen interest in developing better understanding of how companies manage and balance the demands and expectations of their shareholders and stakeholders, and with what consequences. In this regard, much of his current research centers on the influence CEOs, top management teams, and boards of directors have on the financial performance of firms and firms’ commitment to sustainability and other social goals. He is particularly drawn to studying the impact of corporate leaders’ gender, personalites and values on strategy and innovation in organizations. At a more micro level, his research examines how identity and identification shape organizational decisions, routines and outcomes. His areas of expertise include behavioral strategy, strategic leadership & governance, organizational learning, organizational identity, and innovation.
