Our cross-cultural research is forthcoming in the journal Frontiers of Business Research in China

September 5, 2014

We are very glad that our cross-cultural research will be published in the journal “Frontiers of Business Research in China” (Vol. 8, issue 4). The article I wrote with Prof. Ge and N. Yaru, of the Central University of Finance and Economics, is titled “Improving Attitude toward Corporate Strategy with Visual Mapping: Scale Development and Application in Europe and China”.

In this paper we developed a scale of attitude toward a corporate strategy which is suitable both in Europe and in China. In fact we have testes all the questions of our newly developed scale in both countries. We have then used the scale to test the effect of a visual representation of a business strategy (compared to a classic textual description) in China and Europe. We found that when content is presented with both text and visual representations (together), people have a more positive attitute toward it. This effect is stronger in Europe, than in China.

KV blogs

December 4, 2010

It seems that the interest for knowledge visualization is growing in the blogosphere.

I came across a couple of interesting blogs on the topic of conceptual visualizations:

First discipline, by Joseph Manuel, India: “The FD framework is a collection of visual frames as a tool to provide inputs for discussion and convergence Reality is perceived as well as created by the mental models which have evolved over the history of humanity.”

Seeing it, by Massimo Warglien: new blog about visualization in strategy. The blog organizers have been presenting their work at the Academy of Management Meeting 2010 and at the Strategic Management Society.

Mapping Change, Changing Mappings: SMS extension in Venice

August 18, 2010

The Strategic Management Society is organizing a one day Workshop on “Mapping Change, Changing Mappings: Conceptual Shifts in Strategy“, in Venice September 10th 2010.

In the morning it “will be addressing the most fundamental theoretical perspective on conceptual change in strategy and their dynamics”. The afternoon will focus”on how representations and “tools” based on representations (e.g. of a visual, or a narrative kind…) are integrated in managerial practice and how they can be used to promote shifts in a strategy concept.”

This academic panel from prestigious universities of Europe and U.S. is using novel and intriguing concepts and wordings, such as “concept morphing by metaphors”, “analogies and blends in strategy” and “grammar of conceptual shifts in strategy”.
Sounds very promising! I hope they’ll have some documentation online.
