Biography

Gordon Pearson’s background is more or less equally divided between industry and academia. Main practitioner experience was with three different groups of companies, having joined the first as a management trainee, gaining experience in operations, manufacture and marketing, control systems and later being largely engaged in general and strategic management.

First degree was in Management Sciences at Warwick University, followed fifteen years later, by a PhD at Manchester Business School investigating what helped and hindered firms being effective innovators. Subsequent academic research was focused mainly on strategic management, innovation and change, the distinctive focus being on the practicalities of implementation. Having completed the doctoral project the move was made from industry to academia, teaching strategic management and business ethics.

Authored nine books in the area of business, management and economic systems. His latest text is due to be published in August 2020 by Policy Press: Remaking the Real Economy: Escaping Destruction by Organised Money
