of her current work is on the process of scaling up organizational models in the
pharmaceutical, medical devices and health-delivery sectors of emerging
economies. She is the author of a 2004 HBS Press book called How Industries
Evolve, and was co-editor in 2004 of the 21st volume of Advances in
Strategic Management, which deals with issues of industry change. McGahan is
on the editorial boards of the Strategic Management Journal,
Management Science, and Strategic Organization.

and insurance industries, among others. She has also conducted case studies on
automobiles, wheelchairs, baseball, telecommunications, network software,
airlines, pharmaceuticals, movie theaters, soft drinks, toy retailing, retail
banking and high-pressure laminates. Her large-scale statistical studies have

the conditions for persistence in profitability, and the importance of corporate
parents in nurturing risky businesses.
