This blog deals with issues related to technology and organizations and how they relate to each other. It is mostly intended for my students, and as such I post things related to the teaching that I do here at Copenhagen Business School and to my on-going research interests. Occasionally, I write about books or sets of papers old or new that relate to the kinds of questions my teaching and research deal with. It typically floats around in the intellectual borderlands between economics, sociology and organization studies.
Who am I? My name’s Rasmus Koss Hartmann and I’m an associate professor at Copenhagen Business School’s Department of Management, Society and Communication. My research deals with questions of organization, entrepreneurship, technical change and innovation and how those things interrelate. Right now, I’m spending a lot of time on the ‘entrepreneurship industry’ and its effects, on how to decelerate management practice and on writing a textbook.
Background-wise, I have a B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Business Administration and Psychology and finished a Ph.D. on innovation management in 2014. I was a postdoctoral researcher jointly at Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Sloan School of Management and Copenhagen Business School from 2014 to 2017 and an associate professor at the University of Southern Denmark from 2017 to 2020. I was a visiting scholar at Lund University in 2017 and at WHU in 2014.
