Innovation and Enterprise: A Commercial Perspective new Fri 24 Mar 2017   09:30 Finished

There is growing expectation for business acumen in academics. This workshop provides you with insight and skills to work more effectively with industry. The aim is to develop project management skills in the context of industry academia collaborations (IAC).

In this workshop we explore a formal project development process from idea inception through to project implementation. You will practice project management tools and techniques and discuss cognitive and behavioural skills needed to implement them.

We will discuss current UK industry, government (BIS) and research council expectations of IAC and the existing funding opportunities.

The skills learned will support your effective interactions and well-managed projects with industry.

Change is a constant feature in today’s workplace and this level of change certainly won’t go away and may indeed become more intense.

Studies show that the line manager has a critical role to play in ensuring staff are ready for change and in successfully implementing it. It can therefore be helpful to reflect on how we personally approach and manage change and how we can lead and support our teams through change.

This online course will give you some practical steps to help you lead your team through change whilst maintaining your own wellbeing.
