Personal profile

Research interests

My research broadly focuses on the issue of the procurement and management of complex performance. I am specifically interested in how the interactions and relationships between internal, boundary-spanning and external stakeholders influence the performance of complex operations (characterised by lack of clarity and certainty of outcomes and relational exchanges). I pursue this research agenda across two research streams: (1) Procuring and ‘producing’ professional services and (2) Managing the design, evolution and orchestration of supply networks in complex capital projects.

Primarily a qualitative researcher, I am interested in pursuing theory-building case-study research from an individual, firm-level, dyadic, triadic and network levels of analysis.
