About me

Tēnā koe! Ko Peter tōku ingoa.

Greetings! My name Peter.

This website is my little corner on the Internet. As Chris Aldrich say's "this website as my primary hub for my online identity and communication. It’s also my online commonplace book".

I am a teacher and lecturer at the [University of Auckland, where my main teaching and research activity is in the field of strategy. I am particularly interested in Strategy-as-practice (a practice-based view of strategy), Professional service firms, especially engineering firms, and Innovation as strategy, especially technology roadmapping (TRM).

My consulting activity revolves around strategy and strategising for high-technology firms.

I probably obsess a little too much about coffee.

For more detail regarding my teaching, have a look at my Teaching Portfolio. It outlines my perspective and approach to teaching, along with what I actually do. However, it is a little out of date.

Thanks to the encouragement of Andrew I used to do a some running until I retired from it in 2021.

In what little spare time I have, I have been looking into the history of my family.
