EPISODE 19: Professor David Buchanan on using (zombie) movies for research

August 13, 2017

In this episode I talk to Professor David Buchanan at Cranfield University about our research on using zombie movies for research. Based on our thoughts, among other things, we have developed a teaching case, and just recently presented our findings at a conference for management and organization scholars. In this episode you will learn some useful things about research in extreme contexts, specifically.


  • How the teaching case was received by the students
  • How and why movies can help us to understand leadership behaviors in ordinary organizations
  • How movies are useful for displaying teamwork
  • The use of movies in research
