Duncan’s primary area of research is strategic perspectives on Mergers and Acquisitions. He recently completed a three year research programme, for the European Union, investigating the patterns and effects of M&A in the European food supply chain.
His attention now focuses upon a Strategy-as-Practice approach to M&A and how the practices and activities of key executives influence overall processes and outcomes. Related to this perspective, Duncan has recently won a substantial research grant from Oxford University’s Centre for Corporate Reputation to investigate the practices and impacts of corporate communications during mergers and acquisitions.
