My research draws upon the literature of organisation studies, public management, strategic management and organisational behaviour. I favour a multidisciplinary approach to research bringing together collaborators and ideas from different research traditions. I use both qualitative and quantitative data collection and analysis methods across longitudinal case studies.
Research Project Website Coming Soon
The aim of this project is to provide an online toolkit for organisations on how to identify and support change agents within their organisations by ensuring that they have the right person for the role and that they are provided with effective support, training and development throughout their role.
The website will will provide a resource intended to be personal to the individual agent and organisation to enhance their personal development through coaching and mentoring.
An ongoing study of the various shifting organisational forms of health and social care providers attempting to work in an integrated way across the geographical region of Mid-Essex.
The aim of this research is to understand how these different agents come together to create a shared vision of how care should be provided. We look at how learning has been enabled, and how narratives develop which facilitate the sharing of practice across organisational boundaries.
In order to reduce our reliance on single-use plastic, we need to understand the way decisions are made at a household level, and consider how organisational partners can work together to ensure that interventions can be effective in changing this. This project will provide a much deeper understanding for policy-makers, retailers and producers, advising them on how to work in an integrated way to reduce plastic waste.
This project brings together researchers from the universities of Essex, Kent, and Birkbeck, University of London, to do just that.
