Alistair Bowden

Senior Lecturer

Department: Newcastle Business School

Alistair’s main interests are in strategy practice and process. In particular, he’s interested in strategizing – especially when no one says they’re ‘doing strategy’ – as an organic, emergent process that occurs through everyday interactions. He teaches third year and masters modules in strategy for a range of programmes involving students in practice (part time, distance learning, placement, and Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship). He is also the programme leader for a closed CMDA for Vertu Motors PLC.

 

Alistair began his career as a museum curator, before becoming a field geologist at the British Geological Survey. He then set up the Dinosaur Coast, before returning to Durham, where he did his first degree in geology (1991-1994) and research in palaeontology and stratigraphy (1996-2001), to manage the County Council’s museums and heritage teams. After doing an MBA at Durham (2003-2005), Alistair took on a corporate project management role in the change team at Durham County Council, before leaving employment and setting up his own consultancy business and working with his wife to develop an equine stud for ten years.
