Session Abstract

Elaine Harris

Honorary Professor, Aston Business School

Elaine has been Professor of Accounting and Management at Roehampton since 2010 and was also the Director of the Business School from 2010 to 2014. She was leader of the PhD programme in the Business School from 2016 to 2021 and still leads a research team on strategic investment decision making. Elaine is Associate Editor of the British Accounting Review (BAR) and Chair of the Management Control Association (MCA). She is editor of the Routledge Companion to Performance Management and Control (2018) and one of its 52 authors. She has won both best paper and reviewer awards for Emerald journals and was awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award 2020 by the British Accounting & Finance Association (BAFA).

She has over 36 years of experience in higher education, including more than 20 years as a manager as well as an academic. She continues to supervise PhD students and mentor and co-author with academic staff.

Elaine's research is focussed upon how managers make sense of risky business propositions in strategic project appraisals, and how they interact with other organisational members and external parties in reaching strategic investment decisions. Elaine's work draws on theories from psychology, e.g. cognition, and increasingly from sociology, e.g. structuration. Her aim is to develop practice-based theory on strategic investment decision-making (SIDM) that acknowledges both the psychology of managerial judgement and the social context of decision-making processes. She is currently exploring the non-financial inputs to SIDM such as 'legacy' motivations and sustainable development goals.
