Researcher Development Initiative (RDI), 2005 - 2010
Building Management Research Capacity: Developing Researchers Through the Life Course
01/05/06 - 01/05/09
- x 2-day doctoral symposia
This is now well established as the UK’s premier residential school in doctoral training in business and management, offering advanced methodological training, small seminar group discussions of students’ individual research projects, and workshops on PhD and career-related issues.
- 2 x 1-day workshops on advanced writing for journal publication (quantitative)
- 2 x 1-day workshops on advanced writing for journal publication (qualitative)
These workshops were targeted at academics with a track record in publishing, who aspired to improve the quality of their submissions and seek to publish in the very best journals in the field.
- 1 x workshop on deriving research output from enterprise activities
This workshop was particularly important for MBS academics, many of whom have much experience in delivering enterprise activities but little support in developing this into research.
- 1 x 2-day workshop on managing research projects and programmes
This workshop was targeted at those who are moving into formal research leadership positions.
BAM intends to repeat all of these events in the future on a self funding basis.
In addition, the funding of a part-time administrative post facilitated BAM in developing and running several other researcher development events during the period, including:
- Publishing workshops
- Writing a Successful ESRC Research Grant Proposal
- Qualitative Methods workshops- Template Analysis; Discourse Analysis
- Quantitative Methods workshops
- Research Excellence Framework Consultation
- Practice Relevant Research seminars
- Development Programme for Directors of Research (with the Association of Business Schools)
BAM, with the ESRC has now established a Researcher Development Gateway for management and business researchers.
