Strategy, Organisational Learning and Resilience Research Unit
The Strategy, Organisational Learning and Resilience (SOLAR) research unit was formed in 2002 and represents a new focus for scholars researching in the field of strategy and organisation.
We have attracted funding from the ESRC and other sources to further research and develop a deep theoretical and empirical understanding of this, as yet, undeveloped intellectual terrain. We aim to investigate issues at both the theoretical and applied levels.
- Networks and new forms of organisation, the aim being to establish a clear understanding of how network forms operate and what characteristics might be associated with more and less successful networks
- Teams in organisations, in particular those set up to provide and stimulate innovation in organisations
- Strategic decision making, particularly the problems of implementation
- Inter-organisational relationships between business schools and corporate MBA sponsoring organisations. The research aims to uncover patterns, themes, and characteristics of strategy and learning in an educational context.
