Duke CE professor, chair of the Dialogue journal, and author of Inside the Leader’s Mind (FT Prentice Hall, 2011) and The Strategy of Execution (with Simon Carter, McGraw Hill 2013). Mellon was again listed in 2017 as one of the top 30 influencers by HR Magazine.  Also in 2017, Mellon published a series of articles in Harvard Business Review (“How to turn around a failing school”, “The one type of leader who can turn around a failing school” and “How the best school leaders create enduring change” with Alex Hill et al) based on an extensive 7 year research project.  The next article will propose radical change to how the whole UK school system is run, and other education systems which face similar challenges, such as the USA.  The lessons will be applicable more widely to any complex systems, such as global businesses.  Her current work focuses on the roles of men and women in organizations and how the balance can and should be shifted.
