Quy N. Huy: Strategy Execution and Emotions

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterScientificpeer-review


Strategy execution is a challenging organizational process that intertwines structural, economic, and social processes. Quy Huy’s work has increased our understanding of the social dynamics in this context. In particular, his work has described how managers in various different roles perceive organizational events differently, feel different emotions, and take various kinds of actions to promote organizational change. Their emotional reactions, subsequent behaviors, and the feedback loops between various people’s emotions and actions ultimately influence organizational outcomes in ways that Quy’s research has explicated. He has thus increased our understanding of change processes and also provided practical advice on how executives can better lead the execution of their strategies.
