Mengge Li
Assistant Professor, Marketing and Management

Overall, my research revolves around the upper-echelons of corporations – chief executives, top management teams, and board of directors. I study the interaction and dynamics of this group of key decision makers and their influence over various organizational processes and outcomes. My research on CEOs and innovation challenges some widely accepted assumptions and examines CEO influence on innovation processes and outcomes. My research on managerial discretion aims to synthesize fragmented research and develop a theoretical framework that can potentially guide future research in strategic leadership. My research on board of directors goes beyond the most commonly studied demographic characteristics and explores team dynamics and processes. I strongly believe that the human factor is the most influential source of heterogeneity in organizational processes and outcomes. The complexity of organizations and psychological and social phenomena calls for more nuanced research in this area to enhance our understanding and better inform practitioners.
