Floor van den Born is Assistant Professor of Strategic Management at the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration of VU University Amsterdam. She specializes in team creativity and innovation in the creative industries.
Before joining the VU University Amsterdam in 2013, Floor obtained her PhD in Organizational Behavior and Management at HEC Paris. Adopting an interdisciplinary perspective, her dissertation focuses on the antecedents of team-level creativity, combining two perspectives. On the one hand, from an intergroup perspective, she analyzes teams’ external activities in terms of brokerage and membership change for generating access to and transfer of diverse knowledge embedded in the macrostructural environment of teams. On the other hand, from an intragroup perspective, Floor examines cooperation and collaboration dynamics, such as interpersonal interaction, knowledge conversion between team members, and the role of creative disruptions in improvisation. Combining the two perspectives provides an integrated theoretical framework for explaining and predicting team creativity. In her research, Floor uses both qualitative and quantitative approaches, such as semi-structured interviews, panel regression, and social network analysis. The empirical setting is the New York City jazz music industry.
