Leading Technology and Workplace Innovation

Summary

Balancing the ongoing tensions between implementing new technology, products and organisational processes and creating high quality outcomes for business and employees is an ever present challenge for all businesses, large and small. This leadership challenge is even more critical across integrated supply chain arrangements. This research focuses on how leadership can guide technological innovation and its implementation, reduce business risks and enable more effective management as the consequence of change.

Specifically, it will investigate the application of findings from the Open Innovation (OI) literature and dynamic capability theory in informing and improving key leadership practices in a multi–disciplinary healthcare setting–a technology–rich environment that is facing significant, externally driven, change. We focus on the healthcare context due to the importance that leadership plays for the increasingly collaborative and team-based approaches required between interlinked key personnel and patients.

Funded by the Centre for Workplace Leadership (2014–2015).
