About Olivier Chatain

Olivier Chatain studies how firms interact with their competitive environment, with an emphasis on developing the value-based foundations of business strategy. He has applied and further developed these methods to study how client-specific value creation affects firm strategy and the deployment of their key resources. Moreover, his research has investigated how firms shape their competitive environment thanks to non-market strategies and interventions in markets for strategic resources.

His current research builds on these insights to understand value creation in business ecosystems as well as how firms increasingly interact with state and non-state actors beyond the economic sphere.
