Personal profile

Research interests

My research interests lie in the areas of strategy development and organizational change.  I take a particular interest in what people do in the development of strategy and have therefore studied away days and workshops as well as conducting longitudinal studies with a range of FTSE-listed organizations, major public-sector organizations and SMEs.  I have used complexity theory, narrative, learning and a range of other processual explanations of how and why strategy and change occur.  I am also interested in the role of research methods in improving the relevance of management research and have published on the relevance debate, ethnography and action research.
