Organisation profile

The group’s research interests span two broad but interlinked areas, concerned with the management of:

  • Technology; including operations management and innovation, and
  • Information; including information and communication technologies, information systems, e-business and knowledge management.

The common thread binding these two areas together is the use of technology (in its broadest sense) to improve organisational performance. Our research is concerned with the impact of technology at an individual, organisational and societal level. Current research activity covers areas as diverse as communication in virtual workplaces, fuel cell technology and the use of ICTs in SMEs.

The group’s research is usually applied in nature and links with industry and commerce are strong. The group has a healthy track record of income generation from funding bodies as diverse as the EU, the Leverhulme Trust, the Higher Education Innovation Fund, and Chartered Institute of Management Accountants as well as directly from industry.

Group members frequently collaborate with industrial and commercial research partners, as well as with academic colleagues at other institutions (both in the UK and further afield) and in other departments within Royal Holloway. Group members are also active within the academic research community, making regular contributions at conferences and in the pages of the leading academic journals in their fields.
