ARC Linkage Grant Awarded
Congratulations to Dr Jens Beckmann
(CI), Dr Damian Birney (CI) and
Mr David Bowman (APDI) on being awarded an Australian Research
Council Linkage grant for their project,"Flexible expertise
in senior executives." The project will be conducted in collaboration
with Prof Robert Wood (CI), Dr Shayne Gary (CI) and Dr Nadin
Beckmann (APDI) from UNSW.
The prosperity of Australian society requires effective management
in the face of accelerating economic, technological, social, and
environmental changes. Leaders of Australian organizations must
display flexibility in responding to the increasingly fluid and
complex problems that confront them if they are to succeed in the
global economy. An innovative model of flexible expertise that links
synergisms of knowledge, self regulatory processes, transfer and
learning will be developed in studies of managers from leading Australian
organizations. The results will be used to inform programs to accelerate
the development of flexible expertise and leadership skills and
address the current lack of human capital to fill executive leadership
Partner organisations include Macquarie Bank, Brambles, Booz Allen
Hamilton, Qantas, IAG Insurance Australia Group, Egon Zehnder International
and ANZ Australia and New Zealand Banking Group.
ARC Funding is for $2,085,599 over five years.
