MMTC hosts postdoctoral researcher Päivi Maijanen-Kyläheiko from the Lappeenranta University of Technology in Finland.

From September 17th to November 9th MMTC is hosting visiting postdoctoral researcher Päivi Maijanen-Kyläheiko from the School of Business and Management at the Lappeenranta University of Technology, Finland.

Päivi’s research focus is on change management and organizational renewal especially in the media context. She is interested in how media companies address the demands and challenges of the rapidly changing media business, e.g. what drives media companies for innovations and how they build strategies and capabilities for success. Her current research project is a longitudinal case study of a digital transformation in a Finnish regional media company.

The purpose of her visit to MMTC is to develop her research papers and the research design of her current and future research projects. She expects to get valuable ideas and insights during the visit. The visit will also promote research collaboration between Lappeenranta and JIBS.

On October 10th Päivi held a research seminar where she presented a conference paper entitled: “Dynamics of Dynamic Capabilities: Cross-Level Processes of Sensing, Seizing, and Transforming”.
