Pasquale Massimo Picone is Assistant Professor of Management at the University of Bergamo. He has been post-doctoral research fellow and Lecturer of Financial Management at the University of Catania, where he received his PhD in Business Economics & Management. He has held visiting positions at Texas A&M University and IE Business School in Madrid. His research work has been published in various outlets, including Academy of Management Perspectives, Journal of Management & Governance, Journal of Business and Industrial Marketing, Academy of Management Proceedings, and Business Horizons. He received two major awards: the History of Corporate Social Responsibility Award for the Best Paper from the Social Issues in Management Division of the Academy of Management, and the Best Paper in International Corporate Governance Award from the International Management Division of the same Academy of Management. Massimo's research interests revolve around the interplay of corporate strategy, corporate governance and strategic leadership. He looks in particular at two issues: (a) managing the diversified corporate portfolio, with a specific emphasis on conglomerate diversification; (b) the emergence of managerial hubris and how and to what extent a CEOs' psychological make-up may alter their strategic choices, behaviors, and performances. He uses bibliometric analysis in exploring the latent structure of a stream of literature and in mapping the main conceptual and empirical advances.
