Welcome to Mikko Ketokivi's Homepage!

I am a business school professor and an industrial entrepreneur.

My primary employment is at IE Business School (Madrid), as a | Professor of Operations Management and Organization Design. I am also as an industrial entrepreneur; I have a significant equity stake and chair the Board of Directors of Ultimate Hockey Corps, a Finnish high-tech company that designs and manufactures ice hockey sticks under the | PAMA brand name.

My research, teaching, and consulting focus on how organizations are designed, how they function and grow, and how decisions are made. I am particularly interested in contemporary views on general management and governance. I approach these topics primarily from a practice-based perspective. My more academic interests include theories of the firm, research methodology, scientific reasoning, argumentation, and philosophy of science.
