Research Themes and Scholarly Interests

My research interests are primarily in public administration and public leadership. Much of my research is located within the context of the Scottish Approach to Public Services. My interests within this are based on ideas of adaptive leadership in a government setting, the challenges faced in promoting greater community empowerment, how to demonstrate leadership in boundary-spanning integrated teams and the Scottish Approach to Public Services as an example of the Strategic State.
