Dr Richard Breese

Senior Lecturer


Richard became a full-time academic in 2009, after a career in town planning and regeneration programme management. He was awarded a DBA in 2007, with his thesis title being 'Joining up public services - a critical realist framework for holistic governance'. Richard has a particular interest in project management, and first joined the Association for Project Management (APM) in 2000 to help with his role as a regeneration programme manager. In this work he was primarily concerned with benefits realisation, and reflections on this experience are included in his 2012 article in the International Journal of Project Management (IJPM). Richard is a member of the APM Benefits Management SIG Committee, and has collaborated with other experts in this field in a variety of academic and practice-orientated publications. Richard's other research interests include critical realism, organisational resilience/turnaround and the translation of management ideas. Richard's teaching is mainly on strategy and change management at Masters' level, with students from a wide variety of backgrounds, including technology and engineering, as well as general management. He is also the joint DBA Collaborative Course Leader for Sheffield Business School, covering courses delivered in Sheffield and internationally.
