Cardiff Business School, Cardiff University (1998-2006)
Research Fellow and Lecturer in Human Resource Management
In 1996 Professor Barton was appointed as a specialist value for money auditor within the United Kingdom's Audit Commission. Here after initial training in public sector research methodologies he took the lead on both local and national audits within the police, local authorities and National Health Service (NHS). All value for money reports (VFM) in the Audit Commission were commissioned and the findings presented to Chief Officers in Local Government, Clinical Directors and Trust Board members in the NHS and ACPO level officers within the Police Service. Published studies included:
- National Recruitment and Training Audits

- Audits on Sickness Absence and Staff Turnover
- National Youth Justice Audits
- Review of Management arrangements in a Police Constabulary.
This experience provided the foundation for his first appointment in 1998 as a research fellow within Cardiff Business School, Cardiff University. Harry's first project was supported by a grant from the UK's Economic and Social Science Research Council (ESRC) in which Professor Peter Turnbull and he investigated the nature of ‘Labour Regulation and Economic Performance within the European Post Transport Sector.' This resulted in a major report for the International Labour Organisation (ILO) and research publications in top ranking journals such as the European Journal of Industrial Relations and presentations at the British Industrial Relations Society.
This successful project was then followed with an award from the UK's Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) enabling Professor Rick Delbridge and Professor Barton to investigate the concept of ‘High Performance Manufacturing and the Learning Organisation.' Outputs of this research were presented at the British Academy of Management (BAM) and the European Operations Management Association's (EuRoma) annual conferences, with publications appearing in the International Journal of Human Resource Management and European Journal of Operations Management.
Upon moving to Nottingham Business School (NBS) in 2006 as Head of Division of Human Resource Management Professor Barton developed three new streams of research activity relating to:
- police performance and Lean management
- entrepreneurship within the French wine industry
- future strategies for the development of business schools with the higher education sector were established.
The first area included a focus on performance management and Lean management applications within the UK police service. This research resulted in publications in the proceedings of the American Academy of Management (AOM) and British Academy of Management (BAM) annual conferences as well as publications in the International journal of Public Sector Management and a forthcoming article in Public, Money and Management.
The second area was supported by primary research within the French wine growing area of the Cotes du Rhone and was conducted with the support of colleagues from a French academic institution (IESEG). This research has been well received with journal publications appearing in International Journal of Entrepreneurship and Innovation and the International Journal of Entrepreneurial Behaviour and Research.
The final area of research currently being undertake focuses on future strategies being undertaken by both UK and European business schools. with respect to both their operational management and accreditation processes. This research conducted with Professor Lisa Barton (IESEG, Paris, France); Professor Veronique Ambrosini (Monash University, Australia) and Professor Jon Bilsbury (Deakin University, Australia) resulted in his presentation to the 1st EFMD Conference in Higher Education in Horgen, Switzerland in February, 2012. A subsequent revision of this paper has now been accepted for publication in the British Journal of Management.
Over the last twenty years Professor Barton has been involved in policy development, research and management within the Metropolitan Police, Audit Commission, District Audit, Cardiff Business School and Nottingham Business School. As a result he has developed an expertise and competence in a wide number of areas which include employment law, local government administration and auditing. This is in addition to the professional knowledge of legal procedures, criminal law and practical investigative skills that he gained during 13 years with the Metropolitan police.
Within all of the organisations in which he has worked the nature of the activities has been high profile and has involved extensive negotiations with both internal and external clients such as HM Inspectorates, Professional Institutions and Private Sector Companies. In recent years the nature of his work has involved extensive liaison with individuals both at home and abroad in order to manage and develop new relationships with potential clients and collaborators.
He is a Chartered Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) and has held the executive offices of treasurer (2004-6), chairperson (2006-8) and executive member to Council (2009) for the South Wales Region. Specifically acting as the chairperson he initiated policy development and implementation at Regional and National levels and have contributed to development workshops on the future strategy of the CIPD. Professor Barton was also personally responsible for developing the Regional Business plan and was accountable for the budget. Membership was in the order of 2000 in 2007 and grew to around 2250 in 2009 enabling the South Wales Branch to claim a budget c. 35000 direct from CIPD HQ.
Within academia he is a long standing member of the American and British Academy of Management and in 2013 he will be a member of the European Academy of Management acting as a co-convenor of the ‘Public Services Emergency Management' Track at their Annual Conference. This will be supported through a special edition of the International Journal of Emergency Services Management, which he will be co-editing. This follows a Special Issue of the International Journal of Public Sector Management which I=he edited in 2011.
Most recently (2013), following elections to the British Academy of Management (BAM) Professor Barton has been co-opted onto Council and have been given responsibility for creating a dialogue with comparable institutions globally in an attempt to establish mechanisms for co-operation. He has also been elected as Chairperson of the Public Management and Governance Special Interest Group (SIG) within BAM . As such he has responsibility for leading a community of 220 scholars in the development of the subject through arranging workshops, facilitating meetings and encouraging submissions to the BAM conference in 2013 and beyond.
In addition in May 2013 Professor Barton was appointed as one of a few UK based academics to serve on the membership committee of the Profit and non for profit track of the American Academy of Management and will take up office at AOM in August 2013.
Professor Barton also held positions as external examiner at De Montford University (2005-9) and currently Coventry University and external validator to Wolverhampton Business School.
