I am a specialist in strategy 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. My recent book "Strategic Management: strategists at work" (Bloomsbury, 2023) offers advice on how to develop strategy.
I Chair the Chartered Association of Business Schools, was formerly the Chair of the charity Turning Point Scotland and am a non-executive board member of Revenue Scotland, the devolved tax authority of the Scottish Government. I am a Fellow of the Institution of Engineering and Technology, the Academy of Social Sciences and the British Academy of Management.
