Kyle Mayer is Assistant Professor of Strategy in the Department of Management and Organizations at the University of Southern California's Marshall School of Business. Dr. Mayer teaches in the university’s graduate, Ph.D. and executive education programs. He completed his Ph.D. in Business and Public Policy in 1999 from the University of California, Berkeley after his experience as a consultant and new product development manager.
Kyle’s work examines how firms govern relationships with other firms. His research pays particular attention to the contract and its role in establishing a framework for the relationship. His research was among the first to critically examine contracts in a strategic way to explore how they can be used to shape a relationship. Prior work had focused on contracts as a means of providing legal enforcement and neglected their use in aligning the expectations of the firms. Kyle’s work is moving beyond research into doing experimental work to examine some issues in more depth regarding how firms frame issues and perceive actions by their trading partners. Kyle teaches classes in strategic alliances and corporate and global strategy in the MBA program and executive education programs.
