Supervising and Teaching

Thierry had the pleasure to teach before audiences in Europe, North America and Asia. He teach on such issues as: Knowledge and technology transfer, Reinventing Management, Strategic Agility, Economics and Management for Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Business Models. The teaching is always a mix of theory and case study applications.

He’s moto is not to publish or teach on pioneering research that only a few silicon valley based tech company can use, but diffuse the knowledge and best practices as widely as possible, for all, students, firms, society.

Supevision of PhDs, DBAs, master and bachelor level students is a very important, challenging but also highly motivating experience. All subject are grounded in practice, tackle real world problems, and push the existing theory to their limits.
