Transformational Business Research Group

Project: Research

Description

Businesses have a significant role in society. At times they drive significant change, at other times they respond to it. We are aware that recent corporate and organizational behaviour is falling well short of expectations. Recent company activity and organisation behaviour is characterised by limited stakeholder engagement, limited public trust, traditional measures of accounting and performance, short-termism, and usually a bare minimum investment in corporate social responsibility. However, more recently, companies and organisations have started to become transformational entities, embracing non-traditional stakeholders and performance metrics, taking a more long-term view, and allowing societally beneficial missions to drive their business value.

Exploring and understanding the multi-faceted nature of transformation is our primary focus. We employ a vertical framework of society, markets, organisations and individuals to structure our research. The Centre applies a multi-disciplinary lenses to utilise our faculty strengths.
