Research Expertise

Research Interests

Strategy-as-practice, strategic management, knowledge management and international market entry. 

Jason currently has research supervision capacity for PhD and master's students who are interested in organisational sensemaking, organisational change, and strategic integration. In addition to this, Jason is also interested in research projects around the strategic elements of healthy work, higher education management, clusters and tourism, He is also very interested in any research projects that wish to use a strategy-as-practice lens. Jason notes starting out a post graduate research project comes with a lot of ambiguity, and sometimes the best way to clarify things is for potential post graduate students to call in for a coffee or tea and have a chat.
