On October 19, PhD Scholar Sigurd Sagen Vildåsen visited Stanford Professor James G. March. Their conversation was centered on the organizational challenges that emerge when firms include social and ecological concerns in their decision making. The visit to Stanford is part of the ongoing development of a theoretical paper with the working title “A Behavioral Perspective on Corporate Sustainability”.
In the paper, Vildåsen and Prof. Luitzen de Boer are investigating how the “Behavioral Theory of the Firm” can be applied to understand phenomena of sustainability in a business context. James March co-authored the theory, and the meeting at Stanford was highly inspirational for further knowledge development.
