Research Topics

  • Human and intellectual capital

Reed’s current teaching efforts are in the areas of strategic and international management and leadership at both the undergraduate level and graduate levels.

Professor Reed’s current research interests focuses on how firms develop and utilize intellectual capital in performance-enhancing ways. A former banker in Chicago, she studies the banking industry but has also taken an interest in studying this phenomenon in entrepreneurial settings such as the film industry. Her most recent work that has been published in both the Journal of Management Studies and the Journal of Managerial Issues examined the effects of combining firms’ human capital (i.e. employees’ skills and abilities), social capital (i.e., employees’ social relations with each other and customers), and organizational capital (i.e., corporate culture, technological infrastructure) on performance,  as well as how changes in the deployment of these resources affects performance over time within the context of the New England banking industry.
