My interest in organisational behaviour stems from nearly 20 years working in organisational change wth management consultancies Cap Gemini and Ernst & Young and as a consultant to central governement. Much of that work involved designing and implementing situation-appropriate interventions to facilitate organisational change, tailored to culture, appetite and capability. This field of work allowed me to experience organisational dynamics first hand, across sectors such as manufacturing, insurance, engineering, utilities and the public sector, in the UK and Europe.
Key Research Interests and Expertise
My research interests centre on the interplay between employees and their work context, on the ways they go about their work. Of particluar interest are the dynamics and processes around behaviour and change, within organisations and on employees who work accross organisations.
