Inger Stensaker is Professor in Strategic Change at NHH Norwegian School of Economics and Dean of NHH Executive Programs. Her research interests are within the area of strategy implementation, strategic change processes, organizational change capacity and qualitative process studies.

She has extensive experience leading collaborative and cross-disciplinary research projects and strongly believes in developing close academic-practitioner relationships.

In her research, Stensaker works closely with firms as they are undergoing strategic change in order to explore how they can develop capacity for change. She typically examines strategic change processes from various levels in the organization (top management, middle management and employee level) and draws on sensemaking and identity theory to understand the dynamics of change.
