Jon’s work is dedicated to understanding 'how we can best organise work so that those who are performing it flourish'. He takes a hard stand against ‘off-the-shelf’ approaches to managing work and questions the value of much of what we regard as management, arguing that it most of it is self-serving, sustaining a management class, and a burden on the workforce. Jon has supervised numerous doctorates by publication to successful completion. He is passionate about incorporating philosophy into the doctoral experience to understand and derive new insights for management practice and to facilitate a transformational learning experience for candidates, in much the same way that philosophy has transformed his own learning.

I apply evolutionary and complexity science as well as philosophy to anything that has to do with the management and organisation of work, particularly project management.
