We are all professors of Strategy and Entrepreneurship at London Business School. We blog about our research and that of others working in the same area. You will find us writing about topics such as innovation, organisation design, technology strategy, corporate social responsibility, venture capital, and many more. Some posts are specifically aimed at practicing managers; others at academics.

This blog is called the Ghoshal Blog to honour our late great colleague Sumantra Ghoshal, who died in March 2004. Since 2007, every year, we have been hosting the Sumantra Ghoshal Conference on Managerially Relevent Research at the London Business School.
