    Personal profile

    Research Interests

    Dr Enang's research interests lie within the intersection of strategy, leadership, and social change, focusing on whether and how management theory and practice can contribute to making organisations, institutions and societies more just, equitable and sustainable.

    Starting from this broad interest, her research focuses predominantly (but not exclusively) on the material discursive practices that enable or constrain organizational realities. She is also interested in post-acquisition behaviour of emerging multinational corporations and sustainable production and consumption. Furthermore, she is interested in research on qualitative and critical research methodologies and processes and strategies to decolonize research and knowledge.

    Within her PhD, she dared to do things differently, inspired by a need for ‘new ways of seeing’. Thus, she was able up to propose new theoretical understandings, and to develop creative styles of conducting, presenting and writing up qualitative research. She was awarded her PhD without corrections.

    Dr Enang’s areas of expertise include but are not limited to:

    • Strategy as process research
    • Strategy as practice research
    • International business research
    • Narrative research methods
    • Storytelling as a research methodology
    • The use of NVivo (Qualitative Data Analysis Computer Software Package)
