Human Resources and Organisational Behaviour

Kriti Jain is Assistant Professor in the Organizational Behavior and Human Resources area. Her research focuses on judgment and decision making. She is particularly interested in developing an understanding on how individuals and groups make assessments about future uncertainty and how personality traits, emotions, and decision frames influence judgments.

Her work has been published in management, economics, and psychology journals including Management ScienceJournal of Behavioural Decision MakingInternational Journal of Forecasting, and Journal of Operations Management. The research has applications for decision-making in organizational contexts, HR-related policies within organizations, and related public policy issues. Her work has been featured in media outlets such as Psychology Today and The Wall Street Journal SmartMoney. She also maintains interest in areas of negotiation and conflict management.

With a background in Economics and an intensive work experience with a top consulting firm on issues relating to risk management, Kriti believes in bringing a multi-disciplinary and a holistic view for her students.  In her teaching, she is particularly interested in giving students a hands-on real-life experience using a mix of simulations, role-plays, and in-class demonstrations. “When students start designing organizational interventions and test for their consequences, say with experiments, the classes become more meaningful”, she says.

“Developing a critical understanding of how their actions, as managers, translate into consequences for the organizations is crucial. I continuously push students to look for evidence before believing any theories”.
