Biography

David J. Bryde is Director of Research & Knowledge Transfer and Professor of Project Management at Liverpool Business School.

In his personal research Professor Bryde brings a management science/social science perspective to the topic of sustainability in projects, with his research focusing on aspects of sustainability in the context of projects. This encompasses topics under the umbrella of social, economic and environmental sustainability. He is particularly interested in how projects contribute to sustainable development through the design, procurement and delivery of new products, services, systems and infrastructures. This includes topics such as relational/psycho-social, lean, procurement and the operation of networks in project-focused organisations.

His most recently completed research project, undertaken in 2014/15, was funded by the Association of Project Management and investigated relational aspects in the management of outsourced projects.

He is currently the Lead Project Coordinator for the EU Marie Sklodowska Curie Research and Innovation Staff Exchange (RISE) Horizon 2020 Work Programme “Being Lean and Seen: meeting the challenges of delivering projects successfully in the 21st century” (Euros 330,000). This is a four year project involving nine academic and none-academic partners from the UK, Germany and Malaysia. See: https://www.ljmu.ac.uk/microsites/being-lean-and-seen for more details. He is also currently involved in two Association for Project Management funded research projects; one investigating the coping strategies adopted by project managers to deal with stakeholders and the other exploring how project-focused social and knowledge networks influence the meeting of sustainability-related goals.

Amongst his prior management roles in LJMU he was as Head of the Doctoral Programme for the Faculty of Business and Law. He was part of the team which set up the DBA Programme in the Business School and led the successful validation of the MRes Business and Law in the Faculty of Business and Law.

He has supervised in excess of 20 doctoral students to successful completion and has examined numerous PhD/DBAs as an external and an internal examiner.

Professor Bryde is widely published, with in excess of 100 journal papers, research monographs, book chapters, conference presentations, invited keynote speeches/guest lectures/presentations, expert interviews and articles.
