David Harding

Professor in Management Practice

David Harding

As a Chartered Engineer, and then later as an accredited Programme Manager with Ernst & Young and the London Olympics, I have worked with many central government departments and FTSE 100 companies in shaping and delivering global, transformational change. 

With a particular interest in IT enabled change delivered through large, structured programmes and projects, I have been able to contrast how clients are able to embrace and/or manage all aspects of transformational change within their respective environments.

Having already published a number of articles and papers based on my experiences and observations, I have a strong interest in being able to converge leading academic thinking with the application of transformational change across a broad spectrum of clients in achieving our practice based vision.
