Department of Management Engineering, Technical University of Denmark
September 2010 – March 2011. Working with Larry Leifer, Dept of Mechanical Engineering
My research focuses on knowledge management in very early “pre-project” situations within the energy sector. In these early phases, knowledge from many different domains need to be identified, created and integrated into new business ideas. However, due to the desired transformation into a sustainable energy grid, these domains have increased in diversity and complexity, to include areas such as user behaviour, multiple technologies, regulatory frameworks, international alliance creation. Therefore, my work aims specifically at understanding the new business design process and, on this basis, to create support for the business developers on how to handle the multi-domain knowledge of a complex socio-technical system during new business design.
