Yvette Baggen is a postdoc at the department of Education, Utrecht University. Her research is directed towards learning in organisations, entrepreneurial processes in businesses and independent entrepreneurship, and opportunity identification.

Yvette obtained the master’s degree Educational Design and Consultancy at Utrecht University cum laude. In 2012, Yvette started her career as an educational consultant and trainer at ICLON, Leiden University. Her work for ICLON was directed towards consultancy and training activities related to (for instance) blended learning and assessment for teachers, management teams, and administrators in higher education institutions. Next, in 2013, she started her PhD trajectory, which was part of the European funded LLLight’in’Europe research project, at Wageningen University & Research at the Education and Competence Studies group. In her dissertation titled "Opportunity identification competence. Explaining individual and exploring team oppportunity identification by employees", she investigated how individual employees and teams identify potential oppotunities in a business setting, and what factors help them in doing so. Furthermore, she developed and tested a performance assessment for measuring opportunity identification competence.
