My dissertation project investigates various tensions in the core issues of corporate sustainability and broadly management & organization theory, which includes economic profit versus social performance, short-term versus long-term goals, and strategic change versus stability. Methodologically, I have conducted ethnographic fieldwork in Buddhist temples across Asia such as Korea, Japan, China, Thailand, and Laos. The field data allowed me to develop three distinct papers (essays) for the dissertation. Main themes of the papers are (1) organizational paradox, (2) strategic change, and (3) system resilience.
