Hervé Laroche is Professor in the Department of Strategy, Organizational Behaviour and Human Resources at the ESCP Europe Paris Campus. A graduate of HEC, he holds a Doctorate in Management Science. He was Associate Dean for Research (1994-1998) and Director of the Ph.D. programme in Paris (2008-2017). 

From first studying strategic decision processes, he developed three streams of research. First, he researched how cognitive processes and knowledge structures influence strategy formation, with particular attention to the structuring of strategic issues and the strategic agenda. Trying to account for accidents and failures, he then became interested in issues of organizational reliability and decision-making in the face of risks. He also investigated the contribution of middle managers to the conduct of action in organizations. On these topics he developed teachings and published or co-published articles in various journals (Organization Science, MIT Sloan Management Review, Organization Studies, Journal of Risk Research, etc.). He has published several books (Moi manager, Repenser la stratégie) and chapters in edited books.

He was a president of the AIMS (Association Internationale de Management Stratégique – the French-speaking academic society in the field of strategic management) from 2003 to 2006 and Editor in Chief of the European Management Journal (2006-2012). He is currently an expert for FonCSI (Foundation for a Culture of Safety) and co-director of the FNEGE CEFAG programme for doctoral education.
