Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

I am currently Professor of Public Services Management at Kings College London in London. I write about organizational changes in public services settings such as health care and education. I also teach in the area of public services organisations and strategic management in the public services, taking a 'soft' approach to strategy. I am interested in high level narratives of public management reform: especially New Public Management and post NPM approaches.

Last year I co edited (with Christine Teelken and Mike Dent) an edition on leadership in the public services, published by Routledge.

Our latest book on managed networks in UK health care has just been published in the UK by Oxford University Press and should be available in the USA now.
