Om Alexander Wong

BACKGROUND
Unlike most academics, I worked in the industry for nearly 15 years prior to starting my PhD. 

After graduating from Gothenburg University with a MSc. in Business Administration and a MSc. in informatics, I worked as a Project Manager for business consulting-firms in Sweden and China. When living in Shanghai, I helped European multinationals to establish and expand on the Chinese market. Fascinated by my first-hand experience, on how International Business is changing the landscape of economic geography, I decided to return to academia to research and teach about this ongoing global shift.

 

RESEARCH
My research is divided into the two themes - Asian business, and Agile.

Due to the past decades dramatic societal change in China, Chinese firms has adapted to a rapid pace of change and hence tend to be more agile compared to Western firms. As the value of agility is high in a volatile market such as the Chinese, Western firms with sales in China are struggling to become as agile as their local Chinese competitors. Building on my experience of helping Swedish firms on the Chinese market, my first theme explores how Western can become more agile.

In recent years, Agile development has become a highly popular management concept, especially in the IT-industry. The aim with Agile development is to achieve higher satisfaction through an innovative customer-oriented development-process. As with all management concepts, Agile tends to adapt depending on the context. Research theme number two explores how Agile development adapts in different geographical contexts.

TEACHING
Apart from lectures related to my above research-area, I mainly lecture in International Business-courses such as Management of multinational enterprises, Managing across cultures, and International Strategic Management. My Economic Geography-lectures mainly revolves the Asian-region.
