Leo McCann University of York, UK

Leo McCann is Professor of Organisation Studies at Manchester Business School. His research and teaching focuses on the impacts of large-scale economic change on work and organization across numerous countries. He has written many articles on the subject of the international transformation of white-collar work in journals such as Journal of Management Studies, Human Relations, and Organization Studies. He is the co-author of Managing in the Modern Corporation(Cambridge University Press, 2009), a major empirical study into the restructuring of white-collar work in the UK, USA and Japan. His research draws on the paradigms of sociology of work, varieties of capitalism, and political economy, exploring how large-scale ‘global’ transformations are translated through national institutional structures with often profound effects on the everyday lives of organizations, managers, workers and citizens. He is also the author of International and Comparative Business: Foundations of Political Economies (Sage Publications, 2014), a textbook based on over a decade of experience teaching and researching comparative capitalism, globalization, and the restructuring of organizations and work.
