Born in Bradford, England, Stewart Clegg was Reader at Griffith University (1976-84), Professor at the University of New England (1985-9), Professor at the University of St. Andrews (1990-3), Foundation Professor at the University of Western Sydney, Macarthur, (1993-6) before moving to UTS. He is Research Director of CMOS (Centre for Management and Organisation Studies) Research at UTS, and holds a small number of Visiting Professorships at prestigious European universities and research centres. He is one of the most published and cited authors in the top-tier journals in the Organization Studies field and the only Australian to be recognised a by a multi-method ranking, as one of the world’s top-200 “Management Guru’s” in What's the Big Idea? Creating and Capitalizing on the Best New Management Thinking by Thomas H. Davenport, Laurence Prusak, and H. James Wilson (2003), Harvard: Harvard Business Review Press. Because the central focus of his theoretical work has always been on power relations he has been able to write on many diverse and ubiquitous topics – because power relations are everywhere! He is the author of two widely used textbooks on Management & Organizations: An Introduction to Theory and Practice (with Martin Kornberger and Tyrone Pitsis) and Strategy: Theory and Practice (with Chris Carter, Martin Kornberger and Jochen Schweitzer), both published by Sage. He is also the chief editor of the Handbook of Organization Studies (with Cynthia Hardy, Walter F. Nord and Thomas B. Lawrence), Handbook of Power (with Mark Haugaard) and Handbook of Macro-Organizational Behaviour (with Cary Cooper), all published by Sage. In 2012 he will publish a book with Oxford University Press on The Virtues of Leadership: Contemporary Challenges for Global Managers (with Arménio Regio, and Miguel Pinha e Cunha), as well as a set of eight 'Major Works" on Power and Organizations and Political Power and Organizations, jointly edited with Mark Haugaard. Outside work he enjoys cultural pursuits, travel, and current affairs.

Organization discourse theory
Power and politics in organizations
Social construction of Identity
Organizational change

Management professor Walt Nord studies organization theory and behavior and is currently researching the topic in a political/economic context. The author of numerous books, textbooks, and scholarly articles, his newest book will offer a new philosophical framework for organization studies, seeking to overcome current polarizing debates by developing an improved philosophical perspective for organization studies.

As an author, Nord received the George Terry Award in 1997 for co-editing the Handbook of Organization Studies, an annual award from the Academy of Management that is bestowed to a book judged to have made the most outstanding contribution to the field. The same academy named Nord a Distinguished University Professor in 2002 (USF named him Distinguished University Professor in 2003); these honors recognize significant contributions to the science and practice of management.

Nord earned a BA in economics from Williams College, an MS in organizational behavior from Cornell University, and a Ph D in social psychology from Washington University. Before joining USF in 1989, he taught at Tulane University, Northwestern University, Vanderbilt University, the University of British Columbia, and Washington University. He is an editor or reviewer for numerous academic journals.
