Personal profile

My research, teaching and advisory activities are focused on procurement/purchasing and supply management (PSM) with a particular interest in how organizations in the public and healthcare sectors can work effectively with commercial companies to deliver better services to the communities they serve.

Through various projects and courses, I address capacity building and capability development in the management of external resources at various levels and across various types of organization, such as public hospitals, municipalities, government agencies and national government department, e.g.:

  • The knowledge and skills of procurement experts, and how these need to change
  • The strategic development of strategic procurement within organizations
  • Procurement policy and strategy, especially related to concentrated markets

All of which are aimed at the future - strategic change and ‘business-not-as-usual’ – which need to be informed by new thinking and novel methods.

Since 2016, I am Co-Editor in Chief of the Journal of Purchasing and Supply Management. I also serve as Associate Editor of the Journal of Public Procurement, and on the Editorial Review Board of Sustainability. I am an active member of the International Purchasing & Supply Education and Research Association (IPSERA), a Fellow of theChartered Institute of Procurement and Supply and Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Association (UK).
