Lepisto’s research centers on explaining how individuals and organizations effectively adapt and change, particularly in the face of uncertainty and ambiguity. He examines these issues through the lens of purpose, identity and culture. Much of his research is ethnographic or otherwise qualitative in nature. Lepisto’s dissertation—winner of the Grigor McClelland Best Dissertation award and a finalist for the INFORMS/Organization Science Dissertation Proposal Competition—was an ethnography that explored the surprising formation of a higher purpose in an athletic footwear and apparel company undergoing change.
Prior to academia, he worked on strategy as a management consultant with the Monitor Group (now Monitor Deloitte) and strategic planning with the advertising firm Young and Rubicam. Lepisto earned his bachelors’ degree from Kalamazoo College, his master’s from the University of Chicago and his Ph.D. from the Boston College Carroll School of Management.
