Mark's research, teaching, scholarship and economic and social engagement focuses upon organizational change. Mark is a Reader in Organizational Change and a founder member of the Centre for Research on Management and Employment (CROME), based in Brighton Business School at the University of Brighton. He gained his Doctorate in 1998 for his work on the language of change in banking and regularly publishes academic papers on the themes of managing and leading change (details of publications are available at the Brighton Business School website). The first edition of his textbook was published in 2006 and the second edition in 2010, he hopes to return to textbook authoring, but he is currently concentrating upon scholarly publications.
His current research/scholarship interests relate to interrelationships between leadership and organizational change and the historiography of changing and he flirts with postmodern accounts of changing. Mark teaches managing change on postgraduate programmes at Brighton and has focussed his economic and social engagement work over the past decade upon facilitating the human aspects of change and the leadership of change within organizations.
