Professor of the Department of Strategy and Leadership

Jason Good is a researcher and teacher focusing on the interplay of organizations and nature. His areas of expertise include sensemaking, sociomateriality, collaboration, and the circular economy, particularly as they pertain to sustainable business strategies. Much of Jason's academic expertise is grounded in his experience in the commercial fishing industry, where he worked as a fisheries observer/scientist in the US North Pacific. 

In terms of his academic background, Jason received both his Ph.D. and M.S. in Environmental Studies from the University of Michigan's School of Environment and Sustainability; there he studied organizational sensemaking practices among commercial fishing captains in Alaska, as well as collaborative processes among the Bureau of Land Management's Resource Advisory Councils. Nearly an eternity before that Jason earned a B.S. in Biology from Longwood College.
