Communication, Interaction, Meetings, Organizational development
Ph.D. Salla Huttunen is currently working as a Director at Haaga-Helia University of Applied Sciences. Her expertise relates to communication and interaction, and her doctoral thesis (longitudinal study) was concerned with knowing, sense-making, problem-solving, and learning in organizational meetings. In particular, the study addressed the challenges and opportunities that multiple understandings (spread across meetings and participants) can create.
Prior to launching a new career in the academia in 2012, Salla Huttunen worked some 20+ years in business, most recently at Nokia for more than 12 years. She is a seasoned communications professional with a strong background in technical product management and software localization. In communication, her expertise relates to change/transformation and leadership communication.
In her current role as Director of Digital Business – a unit providing education in ICT, administration and journalism/communication – Salla Huttunen drives projects that aim at developing curricula, new forms of learning and pedagogical solutions (contact, online, offline), and new forms of specialization education. Researching the work of the future and the challenges it poses on education is part of her everyday.
