Research interests

Kyle's research is fundamentally interdisciplinary, believing that one can not entirely understand organisations, their heritage and environment, their strategic activities and capabilities, or their internal and external participants and stakeholders from any one disciplinary perspective. His research is in the broad areas of: 

  • Institutional theory in Management/Organisation Studies and Economics;
  • Business, Labour, and Management History;
  • History of Management and Economic Thought;
  • Evolutionary Economics and Business Strategy.


Kyle teaches Organisational Behaviour, Strategy, and International Business. His pedagogical approach speaks to the fact that he believes managers are actually very good philosophers, inasmuch as they are capable of intuitively solving complex problems daily. He believes that his job is to expose them to a range of interdisciplinary analytical toolkits that may assist them to be more reflective and formalise their problem-solving techniques. Kyle’s research speaks directly to managers’ ability to make sense of their ever changing environment, their ability to attract, inspire, energise, and retain talented staff, and their ability to engage in change. In addition, he has contributed extensively to the practice of management through executive education including the following UK-based companies: VocaLink, Dollond and Aitchison, Carillion, Biffa Waste Services, The SIMS Group, Siemens UK, and IBM UK.

Research student supervision

Kyle is receptive to supervising PhD students in a broad range of areas, particularly if they have a good grasp of what they want to do, why they want to do it, how they'll do it, and what they expect to find once they're finished.
