Scott Ganz earned his Ph.D. in Business Administration from the Stanford Graduate School of Business with a concentration in Organizational Behavior in 2016. His research integrates organizational theory and political economics in order to better understand political processes within organizations and governments and the non-market strategies of firms and interest organizations. Some of his recent empirical research examines the lobbying strategies of environmental NGOs, informal influence networks among staff in the U.S. Congress, and the impact of national social and political institutions on industry-wide renewal processes. Scott also has a strong interest in applying insights from theoretical political economy to organizational theory. His recent work in this area focuses on how political processes inside of organizations can act as impediments to organizational learning and effective experimentation, with applications to regulatory and innovation policy
