Professor Jennifer Howard-Grenville contributes to organisation theory through in-depth studies of how people work from within to change organisations, communities, and occupations. By focusing on the processes through which people seek change, her scholarship advances theoretical understanding of organisational routines, culture, identity, and identification. Reflecting her interest in change around issues of social and environmental import, Jennifer’s work also contributes to an interdisciplinary scholarly conversation on business and the natural environment. She is recognised as a leading qualitative researcher with a focus on process theorising, and frequently presents on these topics at business schools, conferences and junior scholar academies. She served as Associate Editor of the Academy of Management Journal (2013-2016). She serves as an Editorial Review Board Member of the Academy of Management Journal (since 2010), Organization Science (2009-2013), and Organization & Environment (since 2011).
