Strategy & Organization


Leadership at the top, especially in transformational times, is a complex activity involving specific cognitive models and skills. Actually, we don't know a lot about these specific cognitive models and skills, how they are enacted in complex and fast moving environment, and in multistakeholder situations. These strategic leadership issues are at the core of Patrick's research, teaching and consulting.
