Sustainability by Design for Shared Value that Scales – An ESG Impact Special with IBM
Tomorrow's Tech Today
March 09, 2023
We can make the fastest progress addressing the world’s most urgent sustainability issues when ESG value and business value are aligned - with technology leadership and impact measurement both critical enablers to accelerate everyone's journeys, tailored to organizations of any size. Reflecting back to 1987, when the UN’s Brundtland Commission established the definition of sustainability as “meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs” the time is now to reflect on the vectors of change impacting this aspiration, consider how far we have come and the leading challenges that remain, especially key ‘intention-action’ gaps, something I recently discussed with the Prime Minister of Luxembourg in parliament.

Empowering the Information Advantage! For Shared Value Business & Social Innovation Success With Muhi Majzoub - EVP, Chief Product Officer at OpenText
Tomorrow's Tech Today
January 17, 2023
At the heart of everything is information! But did you know that 8 in 10 employees today typically experience information overload? Impacting areas as diverse yet critical as decision-making, wellbeing, employee retention and customer churn, this effect is catalyzed by the always-on constant information flow heralding from multiple apps and other often disparate data sources. This impact can be heightened further still by the influence of our own personal filters and echo chambers, something that can constrain the level of new information that we will ultimately remain open to accessing, evaluating and applying.

Generative Design in Manufacturing – Unleashing the Capacity to Create
Tomorrow's Tech Today
December 05, 2022
From Automotive to Aerospace, and from Consumer Goods to Industrial Machinery, design and production in manufacturing is being transformed! This involves a move beyond traditional approaches such as injection and casting, to new tools and AI and Cloud powered techniques including 3D printing and especially Generative Design (GD), the core focus of this piece. And yet with the imperative for faster design cycles and a global GD market projected to reach US$ 526 Million by 2027 (IMARC Group), it is also true, especially in more risk-averse verticals, that many older design tools have not yet been optimized to take advantage of the advance in printing materials, manufacturing processes and industry developments. So what is Generative Design, how can it be applied, and from efficiency, collaboration and productivity, to sustainability, creativity and innovation, what holistic benefits does it bring?

Cyber Security Awareness Month & Beyond with 11:11 Systems
LinkedIn
October 31, 2022
Organizations from SME to Enterprise are reviewing and modernizing their security strategies in a threat landscape that continues to dynamically evolve in scope, scale and sophistication, especially with the rapid advance of digital transformation from hybrid working, to Software-As-A-Service (SaaS) adoption and Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) diffusion. Resilience to vulnerabilities is an imperative and in this piece for Cyber Security Awareness Month (CSAM) and very much looking beyond too, the focus is on exactly this – raising awareness to build resiliency – with the aim to help support organizations of any size in proactively enhancing their security posture. With the CSAM theme this year being: ‘It's Easy to Stay Safe Online - See Yourself in Cyber’ we will explore the key vectors of change impacting on Cyber Security today, with resources and tips on actions everyone can take to better negate the risk.

Time to Act! How Extended Reality Technologies can mitigate Natural Disasters from Flood to Food - HackZurich SDGs Challenge with Swiss Re & Microsoft
Tomorrow's Tech Today
September 13, 2022
Climate change is one of the most pervasive global challenges we face today, from the rising sea levels which raise the risk of catastrophic flooding, through to shifting weather patterns that threaten critical food production - the impacts are unprecedented in scope and scale. Indeed, as powerfully described by UN Secretary-General António Guterres, climate change is a “crisis multiplier” with profound implications for human wellbeing, international peace and stability, and of course, the very health of our planet. And beyond this are the vast asset and activity losses incurred too. We are in a defining moment where awareness and action is key to mitigate these natural disasters, and Extended Reality Technologies (XR) can help enable exactly this.

The Talent Academy – Cloudreach & AWS - Bridging the Diversity Gap in Cloud Computing and Technology
LinkedIn
July 15, 2022
Bridging the diversity gap within tech is a modern day imperative. Not only is it the right thing to do, it benefits all we do, from creativity and problem solving, to reducing the risk of bias and catalysing agility and innovation! Taking gender as just one example, organisations that are close to parity for highest level positions earn up to 50% higher profits than those with fewer female executives. But today, although talent can be found everywhere, unfortunately it remains true that democratization of opportunity for all talent is not - with some of the diversity gaps in the sector highlighted in this latest State of DEI in Tech Report.

May 23, 2022
Digital trust has increasingly been described as the core currency of our time, a critical business and social enabler that can foster long lasting loyalty and shared value impact, making it a highly appropriate focus for brand new research by the Swiss Re Institute entitled "Decoding Digital Trust". In 2021, the number of people making purchases online jumped from 1.66 billion 5 years ago to 2.14 billion – and these are purchasing decisions that are both increasingly and directly correlated to digital trust, with additional benefits across lifetime customer value, brand love and broader economic growth.

One approach to developing futuristic views of technology is to draw upon experience and expertise. However, this becomes increasingly speculative as one moves to more distant timelines and visionary technological forms. This raises the question of whether it is possible to rationally predict how a technology development trajectory might unfold into the future, perhaps to some ‘ultimate form’, that is accessible, surfaces the necessary technological features for development as well as considers the implications for human–artefact relationships.

Mind the gap: But Does the gap Matter in Social Science Research?
European Conference on Research Methodology for Business and Management Studies
July 01, 2018
This paper explores the issue of the ‘gap’between research and practice in the social sciences with specific focus upon business and management domains. This is important and timely given the current interest by funding bodies in the impactful nature of research. However, it is also problematic since such research is frequently viewed as irrelevant by the practitioners it is intended to impact. On the one hand, there is a need to advance knowledge which is abstract and conceptual, though, not uncommonly, whilst empirically grounded, this is construed as being that which is interesting by the scholarly community, where the emphasis is upon developing the field. This is compounded by the need to consistently publish in ‘quality’journals. On the other hand, are the requirements of practitioners which are driven by a solution provision and immediate relevance orientation, with scant regard for rigour. This emphasis upon results is to the detriment of theory and the needs of researchers for quality empirical data. This invites the question of how to bridge this gap in terms of what is construed by both academics and practitioner as relevant. In response, attention is dawn to such approaches that attempt to bridge this gap, such as Pragmatism, Action Research, Constructive Research and Interventionist Research. Each claims to have their own orientation, with associated advantages-disadvantages. However, these, questionably fail to resolve complex situations characterised by multiple views as to what the problem is. This invites attention to Problem Structuring Methodologies (PSMs), in particular, the Cybernetic Methodology, which offer an approach to …

The Emergence of Makerspaces, Hackerspaces and Fab Labs: Dewey’s Democratic Communities of the Twenty-first Century?
Dewey and Education in the 21st Century- Emerald Publishing Limited
June 05, 2018
Whatever has transpired between the publication of Dewey’s D&E (1916) and the present, his vision of the empowered individual clearly manifests in the makerspace. It allows individuals to break free from the limitations of the formal educational system and, as part of a social learning community, discover their potential in new, natural, non-linear and often unexpected ways. Further, and perhaps only just beginning to be understood, is its wider potential to ignite alternative approaches on how to contribute to society and catalysing new directions for the future of work. With increasing research insights alongside broadened awareness of the possibilities, individuals can gain the capability to design and build for their future – that is only limited by their capacity to imagine it.

Making it happen: The pivotal role of knowledge sharing for information technology deployment success during joint venture change
Strategic Change
May 29, 2018
Tacit and explicit knowledge sharing must be continually cultivated to enable information technology implementation success. Effective information technology deployment necessitates a holistic focus beyond technical and legacy factors to include social, organizational, political, and interpersonal dimensions. Attention to cultural integration is a critical component of managing joint venture change and building employee engagement, perception of legitimacy and knowledge sharing norms. Individual employees occupy a key role in determining intended strategic impacts by committing to and enacting change efforts, particularly though making discretionary decisions to share their knowledge or alternatively to hoard, hide or disengage from sharing; an outcome which may be influenced by perceptions on knowledge ownership and value.

In search of an autoethnographic method
European Conference on Research Methodology for Business and Management Studies
June 01, 2017
This paper examines two research situations using the method of autoethnography. This is a contentious yet valid approach to research which can reveal that which is hidden from conventional approaches. The aim is to examine how an autoethnographic account of two unrelated studies elucidates shared issues relating to research practice, and to argue for its legitimacy. This results in a collaborative autoethnography as the authors share their respective experiences to create a shared domain of experience. The first study relates to a two year collaborative research project which failed to create the conditions for one of the researchers to conduct the study expected. The second relates to the practices of learning and unlearning in organic community spaces such as found in makerspaces. Both accounts are contextually embedded personal critical reflections that provide more than the primarily descriptive accounts that characterise an autobiography. They reveal the tensions and frustrations of research as a personal and messy process, with expectations from stakeholders which can be contentious. The value of this paper is that it firstly supports arguments about the messiness of research. More critically, it presents an argument as to why an autoethnographic approach is a valid method to address this topic. It uses the empirical evidence of experience to examine the scholastic debate and present a contribution to the debate about the appropriateness of personal experience as a research method. It is concluded that an autoethnographic approach is valid within the qualitative toolkit of methods.

Employing a Mixed Methods Approach to Benefit Business‑IT Alignment and Levels of Maturity
Electronic Journal of Business Research Methods
November 01, 2015
This paper examines the design, implementation, benefits and challenges of employing a mixed methods research approach with the aim to provide an emergent, integrative and multi‑layered perspective on Business‑IT alignment influences and maturity measurement. The application of mixed methods is underutilised in this domain and it is opined that it can serve to elucidate this perennial, but often elusive, core objective of senior management. It also begins to redress the predominance of quantitative studies and the frequent application of tools and techniques in isolation, not combination. The case of a leading UK Communications Service Provider in a two year period of joint venture integration provides a transformational context for examination, with a methodological focus. It is argued that mixed methods can achieve a mutually supporting depth and breadth of coverage that is appropriate to complex and multifaceted phenomena such as Business‑IT alignment and facilitates consideration of both process and outcomes. A transparently presented two phased, sequential exploratory and emergent design is adopted, with embedded integration. This is underpinned by a reflexive and intelligent‑action orientated pragmatic lens. Innovative use of observation, photography, interviews, focus groups and survey data are synthesised to unfold the Business‑IT alignment relationship, whilst the Strategic Alignment Maturity Model supports incremental maturity evaluation. The approach facilitates a responsive, integrative, pluralistic and holistic evaluation of alignment and maturity measurement, moving beyond traditional snapshot techniques. It …

From Art for Arts Sake to Art as Means of Knowing: A Rationale for Advancing Arts‑Based Methods in Research, Practice and Pedagogy
The Electronic Journal of Business Research Methods
November 01, 2014
This paper advances a philosophically informed rationale for the broader, reflexive and practical application of arts‑based methods to benefit research, practice and pedagogy. It addresses the complexity and diversity of learning and knowing, foregrounding a cohabitative position and recognition of a plurality of research approaches, tailored and responsive to context. Appreciation of art and aesthetic experience is situated in the everyday, underpinned by multi‑layered exemplars of pragmatic visual‑arts narrative inquiry undertaken in the third, creative and communications sectors. Discussion considers semi‑guided use of arts‑based methods as a conduit for topic engagement, reflection and intersubjective agreement; alongside observation and interpretation of organically employed approaches used by participants within daily norms.

The art of knowing in research, practice and pedagogy: advancing arts-based and arts-informed methods
Proceedings of the European Conference on Search Methodology for Business and Management
June 01, 2014
This paper foregrounds an appreciation of aesthetic experience and a broadening, cross‐disciplinary application of Arts‐Based and Arts‐Informed methods to benefit the complexity of knowing. Emergent nomenclature and domain understanding is expounded with theory, perspectives, dilemmas, opportunities and practical implications drawn across the pedagogical, research and praxis continuum. Visual‐narrative inquiry employing Dewey’s intelligent‐action orientated pragmatism alongside reflexive and purposeful theoretical and methodological bricolage underpins the discussion. Primary exemplars transverse third sector, creative‐digital social enterprise and high‐technology settings, with phenomena including sensitive issues, empowerment, identity, transition and the human impact of transformational change. Approaches are employed from the perspective of providing visual arts media and technique support as a conduit for participant engagement and collaborative reflection, and further, by observing the organic methods used by participants within their daily norms. The emergent capability for the researcher to explore personal experience through an aesthetic lens is robustly examined. Techniques within scope span handcrafted (drawing), digital (photography), hybrid (cartooning) and performance dimensions (improvised artistic installations). Both the process of creation and the artefact or outcome ultimately produced attains significance as each affords a specific reflexivity benefit. Exploring issues of methodology and epistemology, both the “doing” and its interpretation are expansively considered to support replication, utility and …

Foregrounding Mixed Methods to Elucidate, Measure and Optimise Business-IT Alignment
European Conference on Research Methodology for Business and Management Studies
June 01, 2014
This paper foregrounds an emergent and panoptic perspective on Business‐IT alignment influences and maturity measurement achieved through an integrated mixed methods approach, elucidating a perennial, but often elusive core objective of senior management. It begins to redress the predominance of quantitative studies and the frequent application of tools and techniques in isolation, not combination. The transformational context of a UK Communications Service Provider during two years post joint venture benefits novel, multi‐layered and longitudinal examination. It is opined that mixed methods can achieve a mutually supporting depth and breadth of coverage that aligns with relationship complexity and facilitates consideration of both process and outcomes. A transparent two phased, sequential exploratory and emergent construction design is adopted, with embedded integration. This is underpinned by reflexive and intelligent‐-action orientated pragmatism. Innovative use of STRIKE observation, photography, interviews, focus groups and employee survey data are synthesised to unfold the Business‐IT alignment relationship, whilst the Strategic Alignment Maturity Model is selected to support emergent maturity evaluation. The approach facilitates a responsive, synthesised, pluralistic and holistic evaluation of alignment and maturity measurement, moving beyond traditional snapshots. It encourages reflexive, in situ surfacing of core themes and the impact of events, interventions and culture. The design benefits data richness, elaboration, validation, illustration and the identification of situated knowledge regarding enablers, inhibitors and …

Innovative approaches to knowledge transfer, experiential learning and SME application within business education
Novel Approaches in Business Education
February 12, 2014
The levels, breath and currency of graduate skills and competencies, continual curricula progression and provision for effective life-long learning are foregrounded as a core focus in business education, within a European context. This is essential to achieve the competitive growth and digital literacy aims of the Europe 2020 Strategy, alongside other flagship initiatives including Innovation Union, the Agenda for New Skills for New Jobs, the IPR Strategy'A Single Market for Intellectual Property Rights', a Digital Agenda for Europe and the Creative Europe programme (OECD 2010; European Commission 2014a, 2014b). Business education must also address specific market needs such as fulfilling the 900,000 ICT job vacancies forecast for Europe by 2015 (European Commission 2014b). This is impacted by uneven digital skill levels, a need for enhanced training support for educators and demands for an integrative ICT investment infrastructure (European Commission 2013a)

Middle Management Knowledge by Possession and Position: A Panoptic Examination of Individual Knowledge Sharing Influences
The Electronic Journal of Knowledge Management
January 01, 2014
This paper elucidates the spectra of influences that impact the intra‑organisational tacit and explicit knowledge sharing behaviour of the middle line, a boundary spanning layer highly capable to influence, inform and transform. The approach addresses a deficiency in research that affords an eclectic perspective across both knowledge types simultaneously and at an individual level of analysis. Advancing Ipe’s (2003) conceptual work, the Multidimensional Model of Individual Knowledge Sharing Influences integrates robust and multi‑disciplinary theoretical exposition with empirical validation in four leading UK Communication Sector operators. The model encapsulates the direct influence factors of Motivation to Share, Nature of Knowledge, Opportunity to Share, Culture and the Nature of the Individual. Organisational Velocity provides an original conceptualisation of the continual, episodic and ambiguous change that reflects reality in many post‑industrial settings and is expressed as the tension between centrifugal and centripetal forces acting on the other factors. All six dimensions are shown to impact individual knowledge sharing practice, with underexplored constructs such as personality traits and aspects of demography emerging as significant. Organisational Velocity can operate in a moderating and primarily centrifugal capacity on Motivation to Share, Opportunities to Share and the Nature of the Individual. The study demonstrates that a panoptic, pluralistic and interdisciplinary perspective combining human, social, technological and contextual factors must be considered to understand sharing behaviour and optimise knowledge management interventions. A particular element may not be evaluated in isolation. Further, when factor dynamics are sub‑optimum, the middle line may pragmatically orientate towards personal knowledge management mechanisms. Evidence of hoarding, hiding or disengagement from sharing is identified with some managers electing to utilise their knowledge in possession and network positional opportunity to generate rent in alignment with individual and affiliated group interests, negating its aggregation for wider organisational benefit. Implications for research and practice are fully explored.

Advancing Polyphonic, Multi‑layered and Authentic Narrative Inquiry: Actor Sensemaking during Transformational Change
The Electronic Journal of Business Research Methods
December 01, 2013
This paper foregrounds multi‑layered and polyphonic narrative inquiry to elucidate an authentic representation of the intersectional sensemaking processes of organisational actors. This can afford particular value during the complex and dynamic circumstances of transformational change, as exemplified within the narrative tension of the joint venture Communications Sector Provider case examined in this study. The approach is panoptic and deeply situated within the context of understanding meaning‑making. This is achieved by adopting a multiplicity of embedded, creative and integrative approaches to narrative elucidation, evaluation and articulation, supported by robust triangulation and process transparency. The original framework STRIKE ‑ STructured Interpretation of the Knowledge Environment is demonstrated to afford particular value as a diagnostic and prescriptive observational tool, based on Wittgenstein's (2001) picture theory of meaning. With notable attention to non‑somatic artefacts, STRIKE surfaces actor sensemaking and emergent narratives in situ. In addition, creative art and visualisation techniques optimise the conduits for direct participant expression, augmenting the traditional focus group method to enhance the capacity for all voices to be heard. The collocation of narrative data within context benefits authenticity and advances the production of coherent and cohesive findings. A holistic, multi‑dimensional, multi‑textured and representational understanding of the problem situation emerges. This brings the criticality of human interaction with the physical as well as the social environment in order to create meaning to sharp focus. It is through an intersection of human‑material, social‑technical dialogue, across physical, textual, linguistic and visual dimensions, that organisational actors maintain, recreate and reinterpret their individual and collective identity as a means to navigate and make sense of, the complex self and group challenges catalysed by transformational change.

An introduction to STRIKE : STRuctured Interpretation of the Knowledge Environment
Proceedings of the 14th European Conference on Knowledge Management
September 05, 2013
Knowledge forms a critical part of the income generation of the system and the complex environment in which actors participate in the creation of knowledge assets merits robust, eclectic consideration. STRIKE - STRuctured Interpretation of the Knowledge Environment affords an unobtrusive and systematic framework to observe, record, evaluate and articulate concrete and abstract elements of a setting, across internal and external dimensions. Inter-relationships between actor and environment are preserved. STRIKE is supported by underlying techniques to enrich data and enhance the authenticity of its representation. Adoption of photography and videography tools provides illustrative and interpretive benefits and facilitates researcher reflexivity. This structured approach to data analysis and evaluation mitigates criticisms of methodological rigour in observational research and affords standardisation potential, germane for application in a verification or longitudinal capacity. Advancing exploratory validation studies, the method is employed to evaluate the knowledge environments of two enterprises in the UK creative sector. These occupy a critical role in fostering entrepreneurial innovation alongside participant self-efficacy. Access Space in Sheffield and the Bristol Hackspace are committed to open software, open knowledge and open participation; sharing peer learning, creativity and socio-technical aims to address broadly similar community needs. Drawing on Wittgenstein’s Picture Theory of Meaning, the knowledge management perspective is abstracted from the STRIKE assessment. It is argued that the tiered analytical approach which considers a breadth of dimensions enhances representation and interpretation of the knowledge environment and presents a diagnostic and prescriptive capability to actualise change. The paper concludes by evaluating framework effectiveness, findings application and future direction.

Mixed methods research: creating fusion from the QUAL and QUAN Data Mosaic
Proceedings of The 12th European Conference on Research Methodology for Business and Management Studies. Reading, UK, Academic Conferences and Publish
July 04, 2013
There is no single recommended means of discourse for presenting and discussing mixed methods research, with lack of data synthesis and process transparency a frequently cited criticism. This paper addresses the deficiency and explores inventive means of data collection alongside innovative approaches to integrating, analysing and articulating qualitative and quantitative sources. A pragmatic philosophy, supported by theoretical and methodological bricolage is advocated and justified. A panoptic empirical study to elucidate the knowledge sharing influences of middle management in leading UK communication sector operators provides context. A sequential‐exploratory and equally weighted QUAL QUAN design was selected, incorporating emergent evaluation and integration. Innovative qualitative techniques were adopted, namely STRIKE‐STRuctured Interpretation of the Knowledge Environment, photographic analysis and word cloud visualisation, alongside cultural‐web focus groups. This facilitated rich, nuanced and multi‐textured data capture to aid the instrument fidelity of a quantitative cross‐operator survey. Triangulation was undertaken across all sources to assess areas of corroboration, elaboration or dissonance. It is demonstrated that this approach enables a multiplicity of perspectives to build successive deepening of understanding; supports transparency, traceability and synthesis; benefits credibility and validation and provides evidence of methodological robustness. This dynamic approach towards the design, conduct, fusion and presentation of mixed methods research therefore addresses a challenging lacuna: to …

A multi-layered approach to surfacing and analysing organisational narratives: increasing representational authenticity
In Proceedings of the 12th European Conference on Research Methodology for Business and Management Studies
July 04, 2013
This paper presents an integrated, multi‐layered approach to narrative inquiry, elucidating the evolving story of organisational culture through its members and their physical, textual, linguistic and visual dialogue. A dynamic joint venture scenario within the UK hi‐technology sector was explored to advance understanding of the impact of transformation level change, specifically its influence on shared belief systems, values and behavioural norms. STRIKE–STructured Interpretation of the Knowledge Environment is introduced as an innovative technique to support narrative inquiry, providing a structured, unobtrusive framework to observe, record, evaluate and articulate the organisational setting. A manifestation of narrative in physical dialogue is elucidated from which the underlying emotional narrative can be surfaced. Focus groups were conducted alongside STRIKE to acquire a first order retrospective and contemporaneous narrative of culture and enable cross‐method triangulation. Attention was given to non‐verbal signals such as Chronemic, Paralinguistic, Kinesic and Proxemic communication and participants were also afforded opportunities to develop creative output in order to optimise engagement. Photography was employed to enrich STRIKE observation and document focus group output, affording high evidential value whilst providing a frame of reference for reflection. These tools enable a multiplicity of perspectives on narrative as part of methological bricolage. Rich, nuanced and multi‐textured understanding is developed, as well as the identification of connections, timbre and subjugated knowledge. A highly emotional and …
