Current activities

Carmine interests lie in two broad areas:

Inter-Subgroups Dynamics: he explores the role of diversity in team decision-making by seeking to answer questions such as "when and how team members' attributes matter for relevant processes such as inter-subgroups interaction, affective reactions and integration of different perspectives?"

Organisation Design: he focuses on the transformation of the marketing organisation in a digitally enabled world.  Key questions that he is seeking to answer include: which industry and environmental factors determine the forms of organising needed to get closer to customers and respond quickly to their needs/wants?  Which organisational and managerial factors enable firms undergoing digitalisation to adapt their existing business model?  How the digitalisation of business activities has changed the role of the Chief Marketing Officer and, more in general, marketing practices within organisations?
