Profile

Jan Dul is a professor of technology and human factors at Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM). His research focuses on human factors (ergonomics) and, in particular, the interaction between people and the physical and social environment. His research contributes to the design of successful products and services, and the development of work environements for high performance (creativity, innovation, productivity, quality, health and safety) to maximise business performance and human well-being. He has a special interest in empirical research methodology, in particular Necessary Condition Analysis (NCA). Professor Dul is currently chairman of the special interest group Innovation of the European Academy of Management. He is on the editorial board of a number of academic journals and was member of advisory boards of various associations, agencies and institutes, He is a regular speaker at management events worldwide and has shared his insights with over 50 companies including on how to make companies more innovative by creating work environments that facilitate employee creativity. Before joining RSM, Professor Dul held a number of senior positions in the (semi) public sector. He was head of the Department of Innovation at the Netherlands Institute for Work and Employment; head of the Department of Posture and Movement Research at the TNO Institute of Preventive Health Care, Leiden; an Ergonomics Researcher at the Department of Working Conditions, the TNO Institute of Preventive Health Care, Leiden. He has also held positions at the Twente University of Technology in the Netherlands; Vanderbilt University in the USA; and the Foundation for Ergonomic Technology in the Netherlands.
