Bruno Dyck is a management and organization theorist who joined the Asper School in 1990. He earned his Ph.D. in Business from the University of Alberta with a dissertation entitled "A multiple rationalities model of transformational change; Understanding the ubiquity of change" to add to his Bachelor of Commerce (Honours) degree from the University of Manitoba.
Bruno has taught a variety of courses in the School at the graduate and undergraduate levels. At the Ph.D. level he teaches the "Seminar in Organizational Theory," and has been involved as member and chair on numerous doctoral and masters student committees. At the MBA level he teaches the Sustainability module in the Contemporary Themes in Business course, and at the undergraduate level he has recently developed and enjoys teaching "Corporate Social and Environmental Responsibility.” The course he has taught most often is “Management and Organizational Theory,” and he has also taught courses in organizational change and international management. Bruno has co-authored a textbook entitled “Management: Current practices and future directions” (Cengage) and another textbook called “Organizational Behavior” (Wiley, 2014).
Bruno enjoys research, and has been published in a variety of journals including: Administrative Science Quarterly, Academy of Management Review, and Journal of Management Studies. His research tends to reflect his fascination with the role of values in how organizations change and in how we think about management. He has recently published a book entitled: “Management and the gospel: Luke’s radical message for the first and twenty-first centuries” (Palgrave). His present research interests are in the areas of developing and comparing Conventional versus Radical management, organizational learning, corporate social responsibility and international development issues. A current long-term project he is working on examines the world’s neediest and most prevalent organizations—there are 500 million small-scale farms (less than 5 acres) on the planet, and 75 percent of the world’s chronically-malnourished people are small-scale farmers —and how to double productivity and enhance community and the natural environment via sustainable conservation agriculture practices.
Bruno serves on boards for half a dozen scholarly journals, was a founding co-chair of the ASAC OMT interest group and is a past Chair of its OT Division, and has helped guide the visioning process for various not-for-profit organizations.
