Research interests for potential research students

My main research interest is to investigate the interplay between strategic foresight and organisational resource weaknesses. 


I am currently examining how organisations could use strategic foresight to minimise current and future build-up of resource weaknesses.

  • Resource based view (resource weakness)
  • Dynamic capabilities
  • Strategic foresight
  • Competitive strategies
  • Ambidexterity
