Professor Julia Balogun

Honorary/Visiting

Research Overview

My research interests centre on strategy development and strategic change, renewal and transformation, predominantly within large, mature corporations. I adopt a sociological perspective, focussing on how strategists accomplish their work through discrusive, political, cultural and cognitive processes.
