- Understand the opportunities and challenges associated with innovation and disruption
- Articulate what ‘growth’ means in terms of its product-market, geographic, and temporal dimensions
- Improve the quality of strategic thinking and decision making.
Professor Marc Jones is a strategic management researcher, advisor, and facilitator with extensive international experience.
His work integrates research from decision theory, economics, and
organisation studies and addresses:
- Strategy as an emergent process balancing intent and opportunism in a dynamic limited information environment
- Innovation as an outcome of ‘good strategy’, effective leadership, enabling culture, and iterative process
- Performance as a result of minimising friction in translating strategy – explaining the ‘what?’ and ‘why?’ – across and down the organisation.
Marc has published over fifty journal articles as well as three books in the areas of business strategy, globalisation, and corporate social responsibility.
His original contributions have been recognised by the International Management Development Association (USA), the Corporate Responsibility Research Society (UK), and in the series Sage Major Works: Corporate Social Responsibility.
Marc is currently a Professor at the University of Sydney, a Fellow of the Ashridge Business School (UK), an Associate of MGSM, and the Director of Acme Strategy Group.
