Mark Mortensen is an Associate Professor of Organisational Behaviour and the Chair of the Organisational Behaviour Area at INSEAD. His area of expertise is organisational collaboration, with an emphasis on two increasingly prevalent ways of organising that do not fit traditional models of team dynamics: globally distributed (virtual) and project-based work. In his research, he has investigated the nature of conflict in distributed collaborations and its relationship to identity, context, and communication; the impact of dispersion structure – in the form of balance, imbalance, and isolation – on collaboration dynamics; and the effects of first-hand experience – gained through site visits and expatriate assignments – on trust. He has also explored the interpersonal effects of working in multiple, partially-overlapping, fluidly-shifting projects, developing a fundamentally new model of collaboration.
