Faisal Anees is currently a PhD student at G. d’Annunzio University, Chieti-Pescara, Italy. As part of his thesis project, he spent six months at the CPA International Research Chair in Management Control at HEC Montréal, from April to October 2019, as a researcher. With the aim of expanding his scientific network, this stay was a fruitful experience to enhance his research perspectives and develop collaborative relationships in a quality scientific environment.
The main purpose of Faisal Anees’s thesis is the issue surrounding the coexistence of creativity and management control in the life cycle of organizations. Having similar research interests to those of Samuel Sponem, associate professor and holder of the CPA International Research Chair in Management Control, they together examined whether creative CEO behavior had an impact on organizational creativity.
