Research Interests

My research explores the process and performance consequences of collaboration and innovation, using qualitative and quantitative methods.

I work with collaborators and students (and welcome new ones) on four major themes.

1. Management and performance of Business Schools: what are the drivers of individual career performance; the performance landscape and drivers of Global Business Schools; strategy formulation and implementation of Business Schools in university settings, and what is the efficacy of our education programs (assurance of learning)

2. The process and performance consequences of:
  • collaboration between organisations (including the role of soft power in collaboration)
  • innovation, especially the role of failure, setbacks and success experience
3. The process and performance consequences of business model design and innovation

4. I believe in bridging the space between research and the class room and therefore write business case studies that can be used in the class to demonstrate how management concepts and tools can be applied.

I undertake research in a variety of industrial settings such as pharmaceuticals, connected health, sport, not for profit organisations, business schools amongst others.

My research has been published in leading journals including Journal of Management, Academy of Management Learning and Education, Research policy, Journal of Product Innovation Management, Journal of Business Venturing, Journal of World Business, British Journal of Management, Long Range Planning, and Technovation amongst others.

My research, in conjunction with collaborators, has won a number of awards including both the Carlo Masini Award for Innovative Scholarship  and the Global Forum Award (twice) from the Academy of Management, the Best Strategy Paper and one of the three overall conference award finalists at the European Academy of Management, and multiple awards for my business case writing from the Case Centre, including the overall Best Entrepreneurship Case Award.
