Accepting PhD Students

PhD projects

My research has a number of inter-locking themes. The first of these relates to my interest in narratives and organizational storytelling. I welcome applications from students who share this interest especially where this is linked to a discussion of management gurus. The second theme of my on-going research relates to the analysis of management gurus, while the third theme relates to an on-going concern with management consultants and with the advice industry more generally. I welcome inquiries from students willing to explore the broader landscape of management advice. The third theme of my research is more broadly concerned with fads and fashions. I am disinclined to agree with those who would dismiss innovations as 'mere fads' and would welcome inquiries from those keen to explore the processes of translation associated with the implementation of management knowledge.
