Professor Stefano Brusoni (http://www.timgroup.ethz.ch/en/people/sbrusoni), will give a talk on Thinking about design thinking: Evidence from the field and from the lab.

Stefano Brusoni is Professor of Technology and Innovation Management at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zürich (ETH Zürich). He coordinates the TIMGROUP - the new Chair of Technology and Innovation Management at the Department of Management, Technology, and Economics (D-MTEC).

Sefano holds a DPhil in Science and Technology Studies from SPRU at the University of Sussex (UK). He has looked at the emergence of alternative product architectures and how they explain firms’ evolutionary dynamics, in terms of their vertical boundaries and long-term viability. His collaboration with Andrea Prencipe has generated a number of papers on modularity, its causes and strategic consequences. Together, they have investigated how firms can leverage on modularity to rely on strategic outsourcing without loosing their ability of introducing new product architectures.

More recently, he has started studying how individual-level differences matter to explain where new architectures or, more generally, new set of rules (procedures, routines) come from.

Prior to entering academia, Stefano worked as a firefighter.
