Public leadership and strategic management

This research area is focused on producing empirical research into the inter-related phenomena of public leadership and strategic management in governments in the UAE. Governments are the main tool for achievement of UAE government agendas, and yet there is little research into how they work. This research focuses primarily on individual leaders and managers as the unit of study, in line with the practice turn in strategic management and leadership studies. 
Current and planned research in this area:
  • Purposes, practices and arenas of public leadership
  • Public leadership development in the UAE
  • Public leadership behaviors, job satisfaction and performance
  • Sense-making by middle managers in government.
