Interests and Courses


Lili Bao thinks about how do teams develop, grow and adjust their set of activities-internal and external over time and how to design teams to elicit a team’s ability to find high-performing sets of activities? What role do interactions among a team’s activities play in creating and sustaining productive interdependence and competitive advantage? To address these questions, she would like to employ a range of methodological approaches, including in-depth field studies of teams, quantitative methodologies, and simulation models.
