Thomas Grisold

Thomas Grisold

Wirtschaftsuniversität Wien (WU)

Researcher Category: Early stage researcher
Website: www.wu.ac.at
Short Bio:

Thomas Grisold is a research and teaching associate at the Institute for Information Business. His research is on organizational unlearning. 

Thomas has an interdisciplinary background in cognitive science where he focused on epistemology, (experimental) neuroscience and innovation. He is particularly interested in the 'predictive mind‘ framework, proposing that the brain is in the active process of constructing and deploying generative models to predict what is happening in the world. Following this idea, there emerges a circular relationship between what we know about the world and how we come to perceive it. Thus, as it has been argued, we are thinking and acting in cycles of self-fulfilling prophecies where our actions confirm our expectations, and our expectations guide our actions. Arguably, this limits our ability to create new knowledge as we tend to repeat what has worked for us in the past. Thomas is working on metacognitive and behavioral strategies to unlearn knowledge and break these cycles.

Thomas is a lecturer for BISII (Betriebliche Informationssysteme II) as well as for courses in the SBWL Informationswirtschaft. He supervises bachelor theses in the fields of organizational learning and unlearning, knowledge-based management and innovation research.
