Abstract  : In this seminar, I will be presenting a series of studies aimed to explore the dynamics and processes within a top management team and thereby open up the black box of demography in this line of research. I will also discuss how CEOs shape these dynamics and the ways the processes within a TMT help in building strategic capabilities, facilitating decision making processes, and enhance various performance outcomes. This endeavor highlight our attempts to advance theory of strategic leadership and cultivating a research agenda that can be informed by integrating theories from various fields of research.

Bio: Abraham Carmeli is a professor of strategy and management and head of the department of strategic management at Tel Aviv University, Faculty of Management-Coller School of Management.  He previously served as a full professor of strategy at Bar-Ilan University, Graduate School of Business Administration (Aug 2002 until Sept 2010), and held visiting scholar or affiliated professorship positions at Drexel University - Business School (July 2001 until Aug 2002), Copenhagen Business School (summer 2014), Arizona State University (2007-08), HBS (summer 2010), King’s College, London (June 2013 until May 2014), and University of Birmingham Business School (May 2015 until Sept 2016). His research focuses on the intersection of strategy and management. He addresses strategic issues (e.g., CEO, TMT and BOD strategic decision making, strategic agility and adaptability, capability building, among others) as well as organizational issues (e.g., sustainability and resilience, positive work relationships, identification processes, among others) by drawing upon and using behavioral and psychological theories to better understand variance in firm processes and outcomes. The tissue that connects his studies concerns processes through which organizations and leaders build capabilities, shape perceptions and attitudes, and promote behaviors (broadly defined).
