Biography

Justin Jansen is Professor of Corporate Entrepreneurship at Rotterdam School of Management

 

Professor Jansen is intrigued by the notions of growth, scaling as well as strategic renewal of organizations over time. To persist and pursue sustainable, profitable growth over time. No matter whether organizations are for profit or not, embracing and navigating paradoxical demands are key! Even though many organizations want to grow and make impact to address emergent demands or tackle broader societal challanges, only a small minotiry is able to scale-up successfully. Moreover, many organizations seem to stall or crash over time because of having difficulties to renew and explore novel areas for growth beyond the core. Professor Jansen is fascinated about how organizations may revitalize and develop a futureproof identity that serves as an anchor for building and scaling new initiatives. His research provides new insights into the roles of leadership skills and mindsets of (scale-up) entrepreneurs and senior leadership teams, as well as organizational processes and capabilities driving the scalability and viability of organizations over time.

 

Based on the impact of his research, professor Jansen has been named as one of the most influential scientific minds worldwide by Thomson Reuters. Regarded as ' Hot Research', the ideas generated by and outcomes of Jansen's work have affected the future of management research in important new ways. Professor Jansen has also been named as one of the top-100 leading professors in the field of entrepreneurship, and noted to be one of the individuals cultivating the leaders of tomorrow. His research on strategic leadership, organizational learning and absorptive capacity, organizational ambidexterity and corporate entrepreneurship has been published in various academic journals including the Academy of Management Journal, Journal of Business Venturing, Journal of Management, Journal of Management Studies, Leadership Quarterly, Management Science, Organization Science, Strategic Entrepreneurship Journal, and Strategic Management Journal. Moreover, his research has received recognition throughout the field and several accolades including the ERIM best paper award, the ERIM best dissertation award, and the SAP best strategy paper. He is a recipient of the Erasmus Research Fellowship. Professor Jansen is currently an associate editor of the Journal of Management Studies and serves on the editorial boards of the Academy of Management Journal, Academy of Management Review and the Strategic Management Journal.

 

Professor Jansen is cofounder and senior fellow of the Erasmus Centre for Entrepreneurship (ECE). This center provides a unique platform that ranges from scholarly insights about (corporate) entrepreneurship and new opportunities, startup campuses for ambitious entrepreneurs, to exciting executive programs for leading and initiating entrepreneurial behaviors within established organizations. Moreover, to create a Pan-European platforms for scholars as well as practitioners to build a world-leading scaleup ecosystem, professor Jansen has initiated the European ScaleUp Institute with renowned partner insitutions across Europe.

 

Justin Jansen acts as a (research) consultant, speaker, and external advisor to a variety of companies as well as governmental agencies. He has designed and developed workshops as well as management programs about the ability of organizations to identify and initiate novel growth paths, to develop strategic leadership, and to combine seemingly opposing forces such as innovation and operational excellence. Moreover, he has advised governmental agencies on the improvement of the entrepreneurial climate in the Netherlands and on spurring the number of fast-growing organizations.

 

Together with the Erasmus University, professor Jansen has started a new venture - BuildtoGrow - together with professor Tom Mom, to help and support scaleups and grownups to sustain profitable growth over time. Transforming rigorous research into game-based learning offerings, BuildtoGrow offers game-based assessments and personalized learning journeys for leaders and employees of scaleups and grownups to drive and manage persistent growth over time.
