Jason's research interests are broadly concerned with different aspects related to strategy, management control and information technology. In particular he is concerned with understanding the evolution of strategic planning and decision-making practices and processes in banks and financial organizations in the wake of increasing regulation.
Current Project: Regulations Influence on Risk Control Practices and Processes: an evolutionary perspective.
The last decade has witnessed an increasing regulatory focus on operational risk management and mitigation in banks. This focus has intensified in the wake of the recent financial crises as well as the reporting of several high profile risk management failures such as Barings Bank in 1995. Yet the effects and implications of the recent wave of regulatory demands on the evolvement of banks internal practices and processes remains largely unclear.
Therefore research in this area is important for a number of reasons. There is a lack of empirical studies which examine the effects of risk focused regulation on banks internal practices. There have been specific calls in the area of management control to examine the relationship between management control and operational risk. From a societal perspective it is important to understand how these regulatory demands influence the ability of banks to meet the expectations of their shareholders and stakeholders.
