Key Take-Aways

There is no pre-set program. Join your peers. Just grab a coffee and come along!

I’ve been an academic since 1987 when I started teaching economics. Among other subjects taught, I have lectured in business and management, strategy and research methods. As well as authoring articles, chapters and conference papers, I have published six books, the most recent of which is Exploring the Green Economy published in July 2021 by Bite-Sized Books. One of my main roles was as a director of research degrees in business which involved oversight of all doctoral programmes including the Doctor of Business Administration. I was also involved as a tutor for the online DBA programme for Liverpool Laureate and participated in the residency workshops for students undertaking research for their thesis.

Research, though at times may cause frustration due to the challenges, ultimately brings joy in examining phenomena that’s intriguing and, significantly, not adequately described in the vast array of literature dedicated to the way in which organisations operate. The key component of organisations – people – may be idiosyncratic, which defies prediction based on elegant models, but can, if sufficiently motivated, be creative and innovative. My own PhD research, based on studying quality improvement techniques in twelve UK organisations demonstrated the huge latent potential that undoubtedly exists in every organisation. Participative Action Research, of which I’m an enthusiastic advocate, can play a major role in untapping such potential.
