Innovation and Technology Management
A research group of the Business School.
The Centre of Innovation and Technology Management (CITM) is a multidisciplinary research centre that aims to develop and disseminate knowledge in the area of operations, technology and innovation management.
Our research, which uses rigorous methods and is published in some of the leading journals, explores themes inspired by managerial challenges and practice. The rigour and relevance of our research is demonstrated by the impact our research is having on companies, public sector organizations, industry associations, professional bodies and government, as well as the everyday lives of individuals.
How we work
We operate in an outward looking environment by proactively and systematically engaging with external stakeholders including businesses, other Universities, funding bodies, and professional associations.
The structure and operation of the centre is based around research based themes. Although the themes are not exclusive, the activities organised by the centre are aligned with each theme. This bottom-up approach enables the centre’s researchers to combine their skills and expertise to address research questions and challenges which are current relevant, and have impact.
Three research themes
Projects explore the sharing of knowledge and ideas across the supply chain. During our first year we have launched a MOOC on Open Innovation and organised an Innovation Colloquium.
Disruptive Innovation and Data Analytics
Projects associated with this theme aim to provide the platform for proof testing ideas that can disrupt the business models of our key stakeholders, e.g. on the provision of solutions to daily jobs as opposed to selling of products, and the impact of Industry 4.0.
Measuring the impact of Innovation (Innovation Observatory)
The aim of the innovation observatory is to work with local Universities for supporting business innovation. It is within its scope to measure and evaluate levels of innovation across sectors.
