The professional practice of Associate Professor Donald Nordberg is the subject of a paper accepted for publication at the Emerald journal Management Research Review. It examines how the concept of psychological ownership applies in charities, and how its effects differ from those of corporate boards. The paper, “Who’s in charge? In Whose interest?” (doi: 10.1108/MRR-04-2020-0190) is a first-person narrative drawing on Nordberg’s work as chair of the board of a major social care provider and as a board member in the performing arts sector.
An earlier version won the prize of best paper in corporate governance at the British Academy of Management conference last year.
