Management and Organisation Studies

Our research investigates the ongoing significance of management and organisation for present-day democratic societies through research on:

  • Policy processes and governance; healthcare management and operations and the ethics of care with respect to commercialization and financialization in health and social care settings.
  • Scenario planning; top management teams and strategic learning and inter-organisational dynamics; reappraisals of classic management texts and debates on ethics in management learning; education and research.
  • Innovation and management in SMEs, especially high growth firms, through policy-orientated outputs relating to government, university and industry interactions and to regulation, business support programmes and entrepreneurial finance.
