Præsentation

I came to CBS in late 2008 as a Globaliseringsprofessor at IOA. Prior to that I was Professor of Organizational Behaviour at Warwick Business School, and Professor of Sociology and Organization Studies at the Open University, UK. My research interests have been and continue to be located on the cusp of sociology, politics, history and cultural studies, with a key focus on questions of organization and identity. Currently, my two main research foci concern 1) reviving Organization Theory (OT) as 'a practical science of Organizing', via an engagement with OT's own past 2) reviving notions of 'Office', 'Ethos', 'Persona' and practices of casuistical reasoning in the context of public administration and state service more generally. Theese two concerns are, to my mind, intimately linked.

At CBS, I am Co-Director of the School's Buisness in Society 'Public-Private Platform',
Director of the collective Velux Research Programme 'What Makes Organization?', and a member of the School wide appointments and promotion committee (CWAC). I am currently involved in co-supervsing the work of nine Ph.D students.

Vejledning

I am currently involved in co-supervising nine doctoral students. Their areas of interest are quite diverse, ranging from organizational changes in healthcare systems,  to questions of scientififc social responsibility, the constitution of  global professional networks, and the creation of markets for windpower. They all involve detailed empirical field studies, and are united by a set of related conceptual concerns, linking contemporary pragmatist analytics with organization studies, broadly defined.

Andre undervisningsaktiviteter

I am involved in organizing a Denmark wide Public sector Reading Group for Ph.D Fellows, hosted by CBS's Public-Private Platform, and also host a workshop on Publishing Internationally for early career researchers and Ph.D Fellows. I also organize a Public Lecture Series on the theme of 'Organizing Uncertainty', whose aim is to bring to the School internationall renowmed scholars in the human and social sceinces whose work has had a profound impact on contemporary studies of organizaing. Speakers in the series have included Marilyn Strathern, Bruno Latour, David Stark, Karin Knorr, Mike Power, Donald Mackenzie, and Charles Perrow.
