Undertaking meaningful research can unlock solutions to complex organisational problems. It can also enable new opportunities to be explored, which impacts on the development of new products, services and support for customers and stakeholders.
The aim of this unit is to enable strategic leaders to develop an evidence-based understanding of applied research methods and the ways research can be conducted scientifically, ethically and legally in an organisational context. The unit will support strategic leaders to become producers of applied research, with the ability to generate new knowledge, based on the practical challenges of the workplace. The aim is to facilitate strategic decision making, and ultimately add value to the organisation.
