Dr Chris Rees - Personal details
PhD Occupational Psychology (Manchester), MSc Organisational Psychology (UMIST), MEd Educational Psychology (Manchester); C. Psychol., Chartered FCIPD.
I am currently the Deputy Head of IDPM and a member of the Management and Governance (MGD) teaching cluster. This cluster manages a number of key postgraduate programmes within the School including the MSc in the Managment and Implementation of Development Projects, and the MSc (International Development) degrees in HRM and HRD. I direct the MSc in Organisational Change and Development. My main teaching responsibilities involve Organisation Development, Research Methods, and HRM; for example I convene and deliver the Organisation Development module which is a core subject on the MSc programmes in HRD and Organisational Change and Development. I am also heavily involved with IDPM's PhD programme. I am an experienced PhD supervisor and External Examiner; please click the 'Further Information' icon above for more details about this.
Before taking up full time work as an academic I held HR positions in both the public and private sectors of the UK. This work background led me to focus my teaching and research activities on HR and change management, particularly as they relate to developing and transitional countries.
Recently, I have been involved in the development of a new research centre (the Centre for Organisations and Development). I co-direct this Centre with my colleague Dr Aminu Mamman.
Currently, my appointments outside of the University include:
* Honorary Chair of International Human Resources at Beijing University of Technology
* Positions on the editorial advisory boards of the Journal of Managerial Psychology and the European Journal of Training and Development.
* Co-chair of the annual EIASM conference on Organisational Change and Development in Transitional Countries.
* External examiner at the International Development Department, University of Birmingham
* Manuscript reviewer for journals including Human Relations, International Journal of Selection and Assessment, International Journal of Human Resource Management, Human Resource Management Journal, Human Resource Development International, Journal of Business Ethics, Journal of World Business, International Journal of Public Administration, and the Asia Pacific Journal of Human Resources
I enjoy travelling and have undertaken professional work in a wide range of countries including: Austria, Belgium, China, Cyprus, Estonia, Finland, France, India, Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania, Malaysia, Romania, Russia, Switzerland, and the UAE..
