Other Activities

Along with our research we also teach on the topic of group dynamics and knowledge integration at the Stockholm School of Economics, since 2009.

Bachelor level
2009-     SSE, Third-year students, in management consulting and Operations Management, teaching basics of group dynamics and leadership

Master level
2009-     SSE, Group dynamics skill seminars – Master in Management

We also teach on the topic of Collective Intelligence at different programs given by the Stockholm School of Economics Executive Education.

An important part of our work is also to interact with organizations in the public and private sectors. We do research, workshops, hold seminars and give lectures between 4-8 times per month.

Since 2017 we are also working on developing an application to support teams in developing their Collective Intelligence. Systems for Collective Intelligence in large organizations will need to be built on a digital platform in order both to support, monitor and integrate resources for team development. A corner stone in such an architecture will be the team application.
