Chapter 8: An impact-driven approach—making a change

Morten Huse


In this chapter I focus on impact-driven and involved research. I present lessons from the ‘getting women on boards’ research agenda, about socially committed scholarship, mentoring, polymorphic research, introspection and the Champagne method. How, when and for whom does our research make an impact? Our research should be fuelled by a natural desire to make an impact. Impact appears over time, and we should consider our impact through a lifelong scholarship. Through the whole chapter, I follow the experiences from my work about women on boards (WoB). At the end of this chapter, I present some examples about polymorphic research and how it stimulates the relaxation of some assumptions in the debate and research about WoB.
