Short version: I research and teach about organizations, I try to do meaningful things and experience the world. Long version: I hold a Chair in Strategy and Organization at Warwick Business School, and am also Associate Fellow of Green Templeton College and the Said Business School at Oxford University. I earned my PhD from the University of Cambridge, Judge Business School, as a member of Trinity Hall. I conduct research on strategic management from an organizational perspective, organization change and development, and organizational discourse. My books are: Strategy and Organization (Cambridge University Press, 2003), Discourse, Interpretation, Organization (Cambridge University Press, 2006); Flying high in a competitive industry (McGraw-Hill, 2009); Business Strategy in Asia: Text and Cases (Cengage, 2010), Crafting Strategy: Embodied metaphors in practice (Cambridge University Press, 2011) and Practicing Strategy: Text and Cases (Sage, 2013). I published over 60 research papers in scholarly journals including top tier outlets such as the Academy of Management Journal, Academy of Management Review, MIS Quarterly, and Strategic Management Journal. I serve on the editorial boards of 5 management journals, including at the top empirical journal in the world, the Academy of Management Journal, and the top theory journal, the Academy of Management Review. I have been honored to receive three Best Paper Awards from the US Academy of Management.
