Professor Verhaal's research focuses on growth and competitive dynamics of small, entrepreneurial firms. Specifically, he is interested in how organizations in craft-based industries (i.e., organic foods, craft beer, handmade products) manage growth, particularly when it undermines their identity or reputation as authentic, small scale, and traditional producers.
His research has been published in Strategic Management Journal, Organization Science, and Journal of Management.
