Personal profile

Research interests

My research focuses on the link between Business Strategy, HR Strategy and Change Management. I am particularly interested in the relationship between organisational change and individual transition. I teach and consult on an international basis.

I specialises in working with large, mature organisations in collaborative research partnerships.  A consistent theme of these collaborations is exploration of the challenges of corporate renewal and people transformation.  My most recent work has focused on the Repair of Trust following the financial crisis, culminating in a report for the CIPD “Where has all the trust gone?”.  This research was undertaken within 14 organisations, including the John Lewis Partnership, GKN, Norton Rose, HMRC and a banking group. Before that I was funded by SHRM in the USA to conduct a study comparing Employee Engagement and Performance Management in the UK, India and China and The Netherlands. I have just commenced a new project with the CIPD, looking at Innovation and HRM.  I am also launching the second phase of my Trust research, examining how to foster the development of trustworthy leaders.

In the 1990s I worked with Lynda Gratton on the Leading Edge Forum at LBS, after which I went on to found and direct the Change Management Consortium (CMC) which ran from 2002 until 2008. Members of the CMC included GSK, Ernst and Young, GKN, MOD and Kraft.

I am a member of the UK Government’s Task Force on Employee Engagement. My previous appointments include Associate Dean and Professor of HRM at Cass Business School, Professor of HRM at Cranfield School of Management and also a Fellowship at the University of Cambridge. My publications include Strategic Human Resource Management with Lynda Gratton and Exploring Strategic Change with Julia Balogun which goes into 4th edition in 2013.
