Johanna Glauber, Ph.D.
Johanna Glauber is Assistant Professor in the Strategy Department at IE Business School/ IE University. Her research focuses on firms’ strategy and behavior in case of failure. Firms repeatedly make mistakes and errors leading to failures that range from small operational flaws to major disasters. These failures can be extremely costly for organizations and society.
Johanna’s projects seek to understand when firms prevent failures, admit failures, and learn from their past mistakes. Having a background in management and mechanical engineering, Johanna is particularly interested in product failures in the manufacturing industry, such as product recalls in the automotive industry. Johanna is an active member of the international research community and her work has been presented at several conferences and institutions around the world, such as the Academy of Management, the Strategic Management Society, or the National Bureau of Economic Research.
