Something Lost, Something Gained: Researcher seeks British companies to study

Kate Hammer

Bob Townley FRSA is looking to understand how the ways change is managed may influence the outcomes. I liked the fact that Bob's research is open to the idea that people and wider organisations may gain from change; but also that emotional loss is real. So I decided to help him recruit research sites. 

To complete his doctoral studies at the University of Leicester, School of Management, Bob is currently looking for 2-3 organisations to interview. Please get in touch if:

  • Your business, social enterprise or organisation in the voluntary sector has 5-50 staff
  • Is located in the UK
  • is changing and evolving, either through a managed process or by growing, diversifying or responding to changes in the sector or marketplace 
  • 3-5 of your people could be interviewed onsite sometime Jan - Jun 2016

If you can help, please read on.

KILN has compiled this list of clips (with running times) related to improvisation with an eye towards scaffolding the viewer with the basics first, then the advanced practice you could adopt in innovation programs.
