Research interests

Nick's research interests are focused on organisational change and development. He is particularly interested in how organisational obstinancy can be both positively driven (e.g. in the defence of values) as well as negative (as in resistance).  His PhD research investigated organisational obstinancy through a longitudinal study of a large corporate organisation using ethnographic collection of data during a long-term action research programme.  His conclusions sought to explain how organisations revert to a previous position despite significant development work.

Key words: Organisational Development and Change, Strategy, Innovation, Public Administration and Management (including Local government, Health, Policing) and Third Sector management
