I have a first degree in economics and social studies from the Victoria University of Manchester, a post graduate teaching qualification from the University of Lancaster, and a PhD, making sense of organizational strategy, structures and relationships. I have been actively involved in professional management education in the UK and internationally for over twenty-five years, most recently in South Africa and Sri Lanka leading major change programmes funded by international agencies and professional bodies. Prior to an academic career I worked in management and management consultancy across a number of different sectors including: chemicals, commodities, publishing, packaging, aerospace, entertainment, finance, textiles and apparel. For a number of years I held positions as Chair and President at branch level for the Chartered Institute of Marketing and served as an education advisor and senior examiner before focusing my attention on research scholarship and writing projects.
My personal interests in economic and social history (C16th to C21st), philosophy, sociology of knowledge, poetry, literature, drama, music (playing and listening) and mathematics inform my unique perspective on managing. Together with my own experience of managing these interests have inspired me to think critically, more broadly and deeply about managing drawing comparisons between sensory experience (hearing, seeing and talking), thinking (conscious-unconscious cognition) and action engaging rhetoric, realities, fiction and fact in flux offering different perspectives searching for connections, interconnections and patterns through relational processes located within wider systems: searching for deep simplicity in chaos and complexity. In this disciplined pursuit of rationality in a predictably irrational world.
My research examines organizational structures, strategies and relationships, through becoming and their being in the world, through their multiple identities and through social constructions, for example: markets, supply chains and globalisation. Actors, actions and interactions temporally choreographed, sectorally identified and geographically dispersed provide the context for these studies. Applications of this work have been published in journals, books, book chapters and conference papers. This interest has focused upon studies making sense of organization; market-led supply chain strategies; variance-invariance and sustainability; marketing decisions and performance; lifestyles, consumption and identity. Understanding individuals and groups embedded in societal systems connected through time, place and space.
I am always seeking opportunities to collaborate internationally with partners to co-create research of value in these areas of interest that are intellectually stimulating, mutually rewarding and have impact on the communities of practice engaged in research. Improvement, innovation and impact on the human condition through research and engaged scholarship is a central aim of my research project.
I teach research methods to doctoral students focusing on principles of research design and how to construct and assemble resources, methods and tools to address particular research questions. I have taught a range of quantitative as well as qualitative methods, subject specific methods and advanced methods. I am personally interested in knowledge construction processes. I have a particular interest in cognitive approaches combining mapping tools and personal construct theory for eliciting and analysing discourse in practice settings. I am passionate about the social of science and how this is different from science per se (subject-object) a fact often underplayed by policy makers in their constructions of knowledge, the conceptualisation of a knowledge society and notions of knowledge transfer. This interest manifests itself through symbolic interactions and theories grounded in practice: conceptualising theories from practice.
Doctoral supervision and examining
I have supervised a number of doctorates in my areas of research interest to completion including 3 ESRC funded studentships, a CASE studentship, industry sponsored students and a number of scholarship funded students.
