Research interests

Dr Sotiris T Lalaounis is interested in organisational paradoxes, ambidexterity, design management and the creative industries. In his PhD thesis, he explored the paradox between establishing internal organisational systems and maintaining creative autonomy, developed a framework for the evaluation of creative services in order to improve client relations, and explored the challenges associated with the merger of design consultancies. Dr Lalaounis’s research explores, through the theoretical lens of paradoxes and ambidexterity, how organisations in the creative industries manage creativity and innovation. Additionally, he is interested in the relation of design management with marketing, and has published an advanced textbook which explores organisation and marketing perspectives on design management (Routledge).
