Prof John Powell is the director of the University of Stellenbosch Business School. John started his studies in engineering at Cambridge University and received his PhD at Cranfield Royal Military College of Science. At both Institutions he received various excellence awards. He started his working career in the Royal Navy and then joined British Aerospace (BAe) as a systems engineer. After being awarded a fellowship, John decided to pursue an academic career. He gained lectureships at Cranfield and Bath University and in due course assumed the chair of strategic analysis. He subsequently held similar posts at Southampton and Cardiff Universities. John’s research programme is highly applied in nature and can be divided into three main streams, viz the use of scenario methods for the identification of corporate strategy; systems based methods for strategic management; and semi-formal and formal approaches to knowledge strategy. John has published his research in numerous academic articles and in books, and has applied it in consultancy contracts with various high-profile organisations.
