Distinguished Professor Philippe Lorino conducts research on organizational behaviour and management control. He tackles the organization as an "organizing process", and not as a static structure stuck in a responsibility and decision-making model. This is a collective inquiry by which actors constantly try to (re)build the apprehension of their own activity, in order to adapt to new situations, to control risks and to improve performances. Philippe is also interested in the role of management instruments, for instance tools for costs and performances control, in this collective dynamic. Philippe has published numerous books and papers. He has been a visiting professor in university of Stanford, Stuttgart, Helsinki, Kelo at Tokyo and HEC Montréal. He has consulted for various private and public firms, and is an expert for the Nuclear Safety Authority. He holds a PhD in management sciences, from Université Paris XII and has also attended École Polytechnique and École des Mines de Paris.
