Hello Kaisa Koskela-Huotari...2015-11-04
… Ph D Student i Business Administration at CTF, what are you working on right now?
- Right now, the main focus of my work is on data collection and preparing submissions for next summer’s conferences. Together with Per Skålén and Per Kristensson, we are conducting interviews at Telenor and studying the institutional change processes that led to the emergence of Telenor Banka in Serbia. We are very happy to collaborate on Telenor with this case that is looking more and more interesting as we get further along with the data collection and analysis. Hopefully, we get to share parts of this story with the service research community in FMM, SERVSIG and Frontiers in Service conferences during the summer 2016. My collaboration with Steve Vargo is also continuing and our first joint article will be published early next year, says Kaisa Koskela-Huotari.
