Full time professor position at BI Norwegian Business School since 2002, but I have had periods of part time leave. My PhD (dr.oecon) is from NHH in Bergen.

"Life is too short to drink bad wine".  This is a reminder to give priority to the most important things. I want to make a contribution through my research, to individuals, business and society, and the best way to do that is by working with junior faculty and PhD students. My working environment is a virtual organization - connecting to people from all over the world. This has also led me to make presentations on important arenas (including various Parliaments and main international newspapers, etc), and I have been teaching at universities in more than 20 countries.

My present research agenda contains three main topics. They are all embedded within the integration of theory and practice - and venturesome research designs.
- Contributing to value creating boards with a focus on understanding actual board behavior, board processes, dynamics and how boards may contribute in the future. The digital transformation of society is a core factor for understanding the future of boards and corporations. (The value creating board research stream)
- Contributing to gender equality in business and society with a focus on questions around getting women on boards. The research agenda about getting women on boards contains observations of actors, their motivations and their interactions.
- Contributing to developing a "sharing" philosophy of doing management research.  I share the concerns presented by leaders of the leading acacemies of management (e.g. AoM and EURAM) about  how the present focus on publishing may take attention away from doing good research. Research is much more than cracking the codes of getting into premiere journals.


2012-2017
I was at Witten/Herdecke University in Germany: Head, hands and heart - a holistic approach to research and teaching. I accepted in 2012 a five year late career position as chairholder at the Reinhard Mohn Endowment Chair for Management, Business Ethics and Societal Change. This private university is built on anthroposophic values. It showed me the importance of having lighthouse universities around in Europe. I had thus 2012-2017 part time leave from my position at BI.

2010-2012
After having been highly involved in the Academy of Management in USA (AoM) I appreciated the establishment of a European Academy of Management (EURAM), and I was its president 2010-2012. My overall objective in this period was to create a European based community of engaged management scholars.

2002-2012
During these years I spent considerable time in Italy and contributed to the internationalization of Italian universities. In management research. First at Bocconi, later many other places including Tor Vergata, Federico II and La Sapienza. I was also in the ASN commission evaluation professor tenure in organization studies.

1997-2002
The main position these years was at the Centre for Church Research, Oslo. Here I wrote six books about clergy and leadership in the church. At the same time I had and adjunct professor position at Halmstad/Lunds University. There I researched and teached about boards of directors in SMEs and venture capital based firms. In this period I was Director of International Programs at AoM, and my committee had the charge of making this academy international.

1989-1997
The main position in this period was at Nordland Research Institute in Bodø, Norway. The research agenda was about boards in SMEs, entrepreneurship and regional development. I had an adjunct position at Bodø Graduate School of Business (Nord University). During the end of this period I became President of the National Association of Corporate Directors (StyreAkademiet) in Norway. I completed my PhD about actual board behavior in 1994, and I got a positive evaluation as full professor in entrepreneurship from BI in 1995.

1981-1989
Several positions in business, ie. insurance (Norges Brannkasse/Uni Insurance), hotels (SAS Royal Hotel Bodø) and consulting (Bonitas/Arthur Young). I had also a short period as development aid worker in South Sudan before the civil war started in 1984. Lecturing strategic control at Bodø Graduate School of Business. I practiced as a strategy and boardroom consultant.

1978-1981
Scientific assistant at NHH (Bergen) and later involved in an action research project on church leadership (Oslo). Lecturing management at Norwegian Deaconal College.

1972-1977
Period of full time studies at NHH (siviløkonom 1976 + HAE 1978), but also religion studies at NLA, the University of Bergen and Menighetsfakultetet (Oslo). In this period I served in the military as a scout on the Norwegian/USSR border, and as a board representative for the army soldiers serving in the Northern part of Norway. Worked as temporary teacher at a local elementary schoo.

What is board accountability, and how is such accountability created? This response to Roberts, McNulty and Stiles suggests a framework for exploring behavioural perspectives of boards and corporate governance. The contribution of this framework is to develop a terminology that may help us accumulate. knowledge and provide directions for a research agenda. The consistent use of a terminology, the accumulation of knowledge and an accepted research agenda among a core group of scholar are some of the first steps in developing a promising research field with considerable potential to create actionable knowledge. The framework can help us sort some of the research, concepts and anecdotes that have been presented in efforts to open the black box of board research.

'Lean in' and variations in gender discourses about getting women on boards

[Academic lecture]. EGOS Colloquium.

Abstract With a starting point in Sandberg’s ‘lean in’ approach, we studied national and international discourses about getting women on corporate boards. We wanted to reveal discourses that may have negative consequences for individuals, business and society. A multi-sited ethnographic study was used, and we followed the quota-debates in Norway, Italy, Germany, Spain and Slovenia. In this paper we first identify various feminist arguments and sort them in five main sets of gender codes. We then following sociological system theory observed how the arguments were coupled in different discourses. We found that not all discourses were constructive. Some of them could lead to negative consequences for women, businesses and societies. This is also the case for Sandberg’s approach. We suggested that her ‘lean in’ approach can be described as creative misunderstanding. Through our study we make an international contribution to women’s career advancement. Key words: Women’s career advancements, women on boards, sociological system theory, feminism, misunderstandings,
