Bruce’s background is in organisational strategy and change. In the 1990s he guided aspects of the implementation of Fitzgerald Report recommendations for strategic planning, community policing, women-in-policing and information management within the Queensland Police Service. Over the last 10 years he has been active in developing water-sector strategy in response to severe drought, flood and significant changes in urban and regional structures. He also has consulted within the education and community sectors, including developing strategies for improved Indigenous employment.
This experience has heightened his interest in patterns of strategic decision-making within organisations facing major challenges. His research explores how dominant stories held collectively among strategic decision-makers limit the effectiveness of organisational responses to complex and dynamic business environments such as those likely to be more commonly experienced because of the impacts of climate change.
Bruce is a member of the Strategy Discipline. He also continues to consult in business strategy and sustainability as well as providing casual tutoring and lecturing within the Business School.
