Critical Organisation and Management Studies

Purpose

Organisations dominate our lives. Organisations structure what, how and when we engage with others, how we live, how we work and how we understand ourselves. A world without organisations or organisation is in one sense inconceivable and terrifying but in another liberating. The Critical Organisation Studies Group is engaged in a wide range of projects that aim to interrogate, challenge and change organisations and organisation. A particular feature of a critical approach is a concern to question what is otherwise taken-for-granted, seen as normal, respectable and appropriate, and to prioritise issues of justice, fairness and equality in our analysis of organising practices. 

The Critical Organisation and Management Studies group focuses on a broad range of topics by drawing from various critical and radical social theories.

Dr Damian Ruth BA(Hons), M Phil, PhD

Senior Lecturer

School of Management

Damian is a senior lecturer in strategy at Massey University, New Zealand, where he teaches undergraduate and post-graduate students and on the Executive MBA programme.

He entered academia after extended stints in journalism, editing and consulting. His early degrees from the University Cape of Town were in the arts, humanities and social sciences. His PhD (Sheffield, UK) was in education and management. He has been an academic development practitioner in the management sciences, and has lectured organizational psychology, research methods, human resources, and, since joining Massey in 2002, strategy. He has taught many subjects in a variety of contexts in several universities in different countries.

In recent years the focus has been on the role of universities and higher education, management education and development and particularly the use of art and design in developing strategic thinking, organization studies, and strategy. In the last ten years he has published over 30 refereed publications plus 37 other publications, received a teaching award, and research awards, grants and Fellowships. He is a Fellow of the Higher Education Research and Development Society of Australasia.

His current work centres on the use of the arts and design in personal development and strategic thinking and non-traditional arts-based inquiries into organizational culture. His main areas of service at Massey University are in curriculum review and developing communities of teaching practice. He is currently working towards a Graduate Diploma in Industrial Design at Massey. Damian has published poetry in little magazines for many years and is a dedicated tinkerer ('sheddie' in NZ).
