For example, Faculty Director William Barnett is currently investigating competition among people and groups within organizations, especially noting the maladaptive consequences of intense competition within firms. Barnett’s prior research includes studies of how strategic differences and strategic change among organizations affect their growth, performance, and survival. His research includes empirical studies of technical, regulatory, and ideological changes among organizations, and how these changes affect competitiveness over time and across markets over a wide range of industries and contexts.
