In this Insights@Questrom interview, Questrom alum and management theory luminary Richard D’Aveni ’79 reflects on his lifetime of contributions to management theory, which were recognized this year by thought leadership platform Thinkers50, and how these ideas can take shape in the most unusual settings.
