Research interests

Andrew Sturdy is a Professor of Organisation and Management. His research interests focus mainly on issues of power and identity in the production and use of management ideas, especially in relation to management consultancy and organisational change. Recent projects have looked at the use of management consultants in the NHS, alternative models to external management consultancy and national differences in consulting use and sources of management advice. He has published widely on these topics in articles and books and led two ESRC-funded research projects on management consultancy. He advises various organisations (on an unpaid basis) on the use of management consultancy and has a public policy interest in this area. He is an Associate Editor of the Journal of Management Inquiry and his most recent book, the Oxford Handbook of Management Ideas, was published in 2019.
