University of Massachusetts Amherst

Bill Wooldridge is Professor of Strategic Management at the Isenberg School of Management at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. His research interests in strategy process are motivated by the perspective that much of what constitutes strategy takes place within middle and operating, as opposed to top, levels of management. Current research projects explore how strategy is constructed through linked interactions between and across layers of management, and how individual-level competencies and practices combine and cumulate into organizational-level capabilities. His research has been published in leading academic journals including the Strategic Management Journal, Journal of Management, Academy of Management Executive, Journal of Management Studies , and Entrepreneurship: Theory and Practice. He is the co-author of two books on the strategy process. At the PhD level he teaches a seminar in strategy process research and for undergraduates and MBA students offers a course on sustainable business strategies.
