Statement for HDR students
Students should be interested in the interface between Innovation Management and Product Development. The research should focus mainly on how to increase the efficiency of the R&D processes, develop organisational structures, which are superior to the ones competitors use and measures on how to change the employees’ behaviour. HDR students would collaborate with companies, understanding the companies’ challenges, and building models in order to visualise the challenges and design changes to improve the companies’ performance. The supervisor would provide the relevant industry partner; guide students building the models and designing the measures for change.
