Dr. Kjell A. Nordström has 20 years of experience of working with multinational companies and has served as an advisor/consultant to several large multinationals throughout the world.

Dr. Nordström holds an economic licentiate degree and a doctoral degree from the Stockholm School of Economics. He is presently an associate professor at the Institute of International Business (IIB) at the Stockholm School of Economics. His research and consulting focus is on the areas of corporate strategy, multinational corporations and globalization. Kjell Nordström has published three books and numerous articles on the internationalization process of firms.

Nordström has been responsible for the International Business course at the Stockholm School of Economics ands is one of the founders of the schools most prestigious management programs, “ The Advanced Management Program – AMP”. AMP is a five week top-management program that attracts the elite of Scandinavian executives.

The book Funky Business – Talent makes capital dance (co-authored with Jonas Ridderstråle) is a manifesto of what our time requires from business firms and their leaders. The book has been featured on CNN and CNBC, and appeared in Fortune, Fast Company, Time Magazine, Financial Times, Paris Match, etc. It is an international bestseller, so far translated into 32 languages. Funky Business was rated one of the five bust business books of the year, by both Amazon.co.uk and Management General, in 2000/ The book was also ranked at number 16 in a survey of the best business book of all time.

Nordströms second book Karaoke Capitalism: Management for Mankind (co-authored with Jonas Ridderstråle) is a new manifesto for how to make it in the world of Karaoke Capitalism. Individuals with endless choice dominate the karaoke economy. The trouble for business is that the karaoke club is also home to institutionalized imitation. Copycats abound. Only imagination and innovation place societies, organizations and individuals centre-stage. Karaoke Capitalism is a call to arms. Today Karaoke Capitalism has been contracted  for publication in 23 languages.

With his colleague Jonas Ridderstråle, he recently co-authored, Funky Business Forever, the long awaited update to the international bestseller. Funky Business Forever takes a look back on the later half of the millenniums first decade and provides evolved thinking and commentary in a way that is truly funky and down to business.

Nordström and Ridderstråle are rebels with a cause. With their unorthodox combination of academic rigor, forceful logic and funky freethinking they once again re-write the rules for revolutionaries. This is a true work-out for the wits. In March 2004 the authors appeared on CNN’s program “Global Office”  for a long interview, recorded in Stockholm, on the ideas behind Karaoke Capitalism.

Kjell A. Nordström is an extremely sought after lecturer. He enjoys keynote presentations as well as smaller workshops.
