Research Summary

My research largely draws on the notion of corporate social responsibility (CSR) to examine processes and concepts within the context of sport. In essence, my research addresses the links between organisational strategy (at both macro (through OT) and micro (through OB) level) and social responsibility with a focus on how sport organisations build effective relationships with various types of stakeholders. Within this agenda, significant strands of research explore the formulation, implementation and communication of CSR in [6, 16, 28], as well as through sport organisations [10, 17]. Important themes in my research portfolio include the examination of organisational processes such as decision-making [14, 22,], influence tactics [23] and building trust [24] in the context of team sport charitable foundations. In addition, the concepts of organisational control [13, 29], and organisational change [25, 20], as well as the utilisation of social media [15, 28, 31] in various types of sport organisations have all become part of my research focus. My research draws theoretical inspiration and methodological support from Strategy, Social Psychology, and Sociology and their associated theoretical lenses. As such, stakeholder theory [4, 19], social exchange theory [23], self-determination theory [26], legitimacy theory [10], as well as institutional [18, 22] and organisational [22, 25, 30] theory, all provide the theoretical underpinning of my work. The interdisciplinary and multi-theoretical nature of my research is reflected in current and forthcoming publications in General and Strategic Management [10, 14, 16, 19, 21], Human Resource Management [24, 26], Corporate Governance [8, 11, 13], Marketing [28, 31] as well as Business Ethics [17]. That said, the existing research portfolio and future studies lie mainly - but not exclusively [see 24, 26] within qualitative research advancements, with much emphasis on grounded theory [5, 14] and content analysis techniques [10, 28, 31].
