Johan Berglund - Assistant Professor
Assistant professor, Johan Berglund, is a researcher at the Department of Management and Organization at Stockholm School of Economics. His main research interest is what passes for knowledge in different contexts. He is particularly interested in the relation between rhetoric, knowledge and power. From this perspective he has studied and written about the identity work of HR-managers; how the idea of ‘good leadership’ is constructed in business magazines and the rhetorical strategies employed by both management consultants and top-management in the attempt to create a convincing story. He teaches in courses in Organization & Management, Human Resource Management, Qualitative Methodology and Philosophy of Science.
