Kajsa Ahlgren Ode
Kajsa holds a PhD Degree in Industrial Engineering and Management. With her research, she wants to unfold how organizations transition towards sustainability.
– I believe in a shift towards sustainability and hope my research can support companies in pursuing more sustainable business models. If successful, I could make a small contribution to the pressing issues of climate change.
During her PhD studies, she explored “travelling” business models. Building on translation theory, she uncovered how business models were adapted when brought to and applied in new settings.
– I find this understanding crucial for the success of business models for sustainability when “copied” from other markets and industries.
She defended her thesis in 2018 and recently started a postdoc project. Within this project, she will develop an innovation tool supporting organizations in the process of innovating their business model(s) – both by finding inspiration in other business models and coming up with entirely new ideas!
