Bio/Research

Sebastian is intrigued by the notion that most organizations tend to focus on existing businesses and clients, and are not able to break away from existing routines and processes in order to explore new business models and markets.

To what extent are existing firms able to facilitate the emergence of entrepreneurship within their organization and, even more difficult, balance this desire of innovation and change with a continued focus on operational excellence?

In this quest, Sebastian is interested in the strategic leadership roles as well as relationships of top and middle managers, in how they conjointly facilitate organizational change.

Sebastian's second research stream focuses on family-owned firms' and start-ups' internationalization - especially drivers of in-/decreasing commitment to foreign markets over time given competitors' actions and external shocks.
