Field: Strategy & Entrepreneurship
Affiliated since 2001

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

He is intrigued by the notion that most organizations tend to focus on existing businesses and clients, and are not able to break away from existing routines and processes in order to explore into new territories. To what extent are existing firms able to facilitate the emergence of entrepreneurship within their organization and – even more difficult – balance this desire of innovation and change with a continued focus on operational excellence? Professor Jansen’s research provides new insights into the roles of leadership, the organizational design as well as the development of novel capabilities as to improve long-term viability and performance.

Based on the impact of his research, professor Jansen has recently 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.

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 scientific director (with Professor Roy Thurik of the Erasmus School of Economics) of the Erasmus Centre for Entrepreneurship. 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.

Justin Jansen also acts as a (research) consultant 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.
