Applied Research Program

Applied Research Program

26 November 2014

Dr Alex Richardson and Professor Shirley Gregor in the Research School of Management offer a new "Applied Research Project" for high performance students in the Masters of Business Information Systems. Students work with a host organization on a topic of the organization's choosing and produce a report with recommendations for management. The first student, Kinh Kha, worked with EY to look at their use of social networking, with a survey of staff usage of social media. A second project in the first half of 2014 involved EY again, and the new team of students, Olivia Nguyen and Shinnosuke Sakamoto continued the study of social media, but also looked at usage patterns. Feedback from EY has been very positive.  These projects are immensely popular with students and have now run for six semesters.

Other hosted projects include knowledge-sharing at Arup (an engineering consulting firm), looking at innovation methods, done through Canberra Innovation Network (CBRIN) and crowdsourcing in government.
