We are living in extraordinary times of great change. Our usual working patterns have been disrupted into a new normal of Zoom meetings, reduced time in offices, intensified operational pressures, and reduced opportunities to pause and reflect. The importance of timely, accurate information is higher than ever, but the leaders' and employees’ ability to access it may be greatly compromised. This concerns information for the work that must be done, but also to strategically understand where the organisation is and where your own career might go.
Building on her 2015 paper in MIT Sloan Management Review (‘Staying in the Know’), Dr Korica discusses how you can stay meaningfully informed, avoid unexpected blind spots, and capitalise on the new reality of the Covid workplace to create novel opportunities to stay in the know.
Dr Maja Korica
Dr Maja Korica is an Associate Professor of Organisation and Management within the Organisation and HRM (OHRM) group at Warwick Business School. She specialises in corporate governance, accountability and responsibility, as well as executive management and leadership in practice. She holds an MSc in Management Research (with Distinction), and a DPhil (PhD) in Management Studies from the Saïd Business School, University of Oxford.
As an interdisciplinary, qualitative researcher, her work is focused on understanding dynamics of complex and rarely seen organizational settings. This is particularly at the top of corporate hierarchies (i.e. boards of directors, chief executives), and where public or societal interest is involved. Her latest research is on coordination under challenging circumstances, which includes operational response to refugee emergencies, funded by the British Academy.
In 2017, she was shortlisted for the Thinkers50 Radar Award, which aims to identify management thinkers most likely to shape the future of how organizations are led and managed.
