Projects per year
Andrew Sturdy is a Professor of Organisation and Management. His research interests focus on the production and use of management ideas, especially in relation to management consultancy and issues of power and identity. Current work looks at the use of management consultants in the UK health service; the governance of consulting use; and 'socially responsible consulting'. Previous projects have explored knowledge flow and boundaries; national differences in consulting use and; the organisation of internal consulting. He has led two ESRC-funded research projects on consultancy and published widely in articles, books and blogs. He advises various organisations (on an unpaid basis), including the media, on the use and governance of management consultancy and has a public policy interest in this area. His most recent book is The Oxford Handbook of Management Ideas.
I am interested in good applications for PhDs under my supervision in areas related to management consultancy and its use, using a largely qualitative approach. A successful candidate must have a very strong and relevant academic background.
