Richard A. D'Aveni, Professor of Strategic Management

Executive Education

“Stories come from my consulting with hundreds of companies and governments as well as from my research. They come from practical experience, and the way I learn is by talking to lots of managers and government officials, finding out what their concerns are, what’s happening in their lives, what’s affecting their strategies,” says Richard D’Aveni. “What I am is an importer and exporter of ideas. I import ideas from one marketplace to another. And I can see general trends that the average person doesn’t see, because I see what’s going on in one industry and another industry and another industry in different countries, and I pull them together.”

Uniquely tuned into the real concerns and experiences of executives and government policy makers in a wide range of industries and countries, Richard D’Aveni has taught in executive education programs throughout the world:
