Chan of Western Kentucky University—concluded that Shepherd contributed to entrepreneurship research more than any other academic figure.The study used a sample of more than 2,000 entrepreneurship articles published in leading journals between 2002 and 2013. Shepherd was identified as both the most prolific author with 54 total articles and the most impactful, as measured by a weighted normalized citation count. Entrepreneurship is a relatively new field of research, and therefore presents “as a unique opportunity for a wider range of institutions and scholars to collaborate and develop expertise and leadership research,” according to the study.With that being said, Shepherd has had his work published in top entrepreneurship, general management, strategic management, operations management, and psychology journals and has written or edited more than 20 books.One of his more recent papers is titled “The Surprising Duality of Jugaad: Low Firm Growth and High Inclusive Growth” and explores entrepreneurship in resource-poor environments. According to a press release, “jugaad” is a Hindi word that means finding a low-cost, intelligent solution to a problem by thinking constructively and differently about innovation and strategy. The paper was published in the Journal of Management Studies.Shepherd is the Ray and Milann Siegfried Professor of Entrepreneurship at Notre Dame’s Mendoza College of Business. He received his doctorate and MBA from Bond University in Australia.Read “Contributing Forces in Entrepreneurship Research: A Global Citation Analysis” from the September edition of the Journal of Small Business Management and check out his 2014 Ted Talk “How Do We Learn From Failure?” below.center_img This Notre Dame Professor Was Named The World’s Leading Entrepreneur Expert About the AuthorMax PulciniMax Pulcini is a Philadelphia-based writer and reporter.
