Publication highlights

I have conducted nine pieces of research since 2000, which are as follows: A) My first research was a self-funded study regarding a social problem - the mismatch of spouses - in my country, Iran. I tried to find a managerial solution for this difficulty by conducting a series of focus groups as well as using the Delphi technique. Around 100 academics from the fields of sociology, psychology, counselling, social psychology and management were involved. The study took one year, running from mid-2000 to mid-2001. Although I did not have an official research supervisor, I did receive support from the most well-known family sociologist in my country. Due to the qualitative nature of the collected data, a thematic analysis technique was used. My first book indicates my findings and recommended solutions.

B) Although my Master's degree was an MBA, my dissertation was a completely theory-based study. Thus, I conducted a one-year long research project in 2005. My research was a literature-based study on how to analyse and manage different managerial techniques in an organisation in order to avoid conflict amongst them. I relied on the systematic literature review technique to conduct my research and develop the taxonomy of managerial approaches, a new customised approach/technique for each company. I was able to identify the elements and architecture of existing business techniques. My taxonomy approach was a theoretical framework for understanding existing techniques and building new ones.

C) I spent approximately two years (2008 to 2010) identifying the intra-firm factors that contribute to the effective performance (success) of organisations. A meta-analysis technique was employed in order to analyse the relevant literature. As a result, a new theoretical framework was developed regarding influential factors in high performance.

D) My Ph.D. research (2011-2016), at Royal Holloway, University of London, resulted in developing a comprehensive model for strategy implementation. I conducted the first and largest comparative study regarding corporate-level strategy implementation in more than 1000 organisations from 20 sectors from 20 countries (all continents). The aim was to develop a strategy execution model by identifying intra- and inter-organisational factors that affect the implementation. The primary data was collected by using online questionnaires and a follow-up interview with some of the participants. My doctoral research used a mixed research design (qualitative and quantitative). Due to a large scope (sample of 5340 organisations from all sectors), my research had a stronger quantitative side with noticeable qualitative elements to develop a fuller picture of the strategy implementation in different industry sectors and different countries. There are three main schools of thought regarding strategic management including the resource-based view, industry perspective, and institutional perspective. In my doctoral research, I combined all of these three perspectives to create a comprehensive theory for strategy implementation that covers all internal and external factors. Analysis of the collected primary data provided strong evidence in support of my proposed theory. Some interesting and unexpected findings emerged after the analysis. That is to say, my thesis reflects just a part of the findings. One of my main objectives in my Ph.D. research was to identify possible impacts of industry context on strategy implementation. So in my study, it was necessary to focus purely on those organisations that are active in only one sector to be able to assess the effects of that sector on strategy execution.

E) A non-statistical meta-analysis method was used in late 2014 to explore current strategies for supply chains. The results revealed a large gap in the strategising aspect of supply chain management. Consequently, a new and comprehensive set of strategies for a worldwide supply chain was proposed in my first book chapter that was published in early January 2016.

F) I conducted a complementary research to my own Ph.D. study in 2015 in order to identify the factors leading to failure of strategy implementation. Due to the literature-based nature of my investigation, a non-statistical meta-analysis technique was utilised. The taxonomy of causes of strategy failure has emerged after a systematic combination of the principal causes of strategy failure (absent, present, incompatible) and approximation of influential environments that contribute to the failure of strategies (near, middle, far). The outcomes can be found in my second book chapter.

G) My second research in 2015 was about obstacles to effective implementation of strategies. I relied on a non-statistical meta-analysis research method. No study was found regarding identifying and classifying the main barriers to strategy implementation. My third book chapter embodies the taxonomy of barriers to strategy implementation that includes the origins of obstacles (internal or external) and stages of the strategy implementation system (inputs, process, outputs and feedback).

H) My eighth research was about an important set of functional-level strategies, manufacturing ones. This study aims to manage current strategies, suggest some novel strategies, and guide in developing newly required strategies in the future by proposing the taxonomy of international manufacturing strategies. A systematic literature review was conducted to identify and analyse any publications regarding manufacturing strategies at the top five academic journals. Among 349 identified publications, ninety-one papers or books had been found to have new discussions relevant to the topic of this paper. As a result of the analysis, two major themes for categorising manufacturing strategies emerged that shaped a new taxonomy for international manufacturing strategies with 12 sets of strategies. The result, in the form of a book chapter, has just published by Springer International Publishing in 2017.

I) As a principal investigator, I worked in collaboration with two other colleagues regarding transcontinental strategies and strategic choices in 2015. We mainly focused on the dominant modes of outward foreign direct investment (OFDI) employed by Indian enterprises in the UK. We also assessed the competitive advantages of Asian multinational enterprises in various industries and the link between strategic aspirations and post-entry performance. The study employed a mixed methodology using a combination of questionnaires and semi-structured interviews for data collection from 124 companies. Our findings will be published in the form of a book chapter in early 2017.
