Sometimes change is circular. CENTRIM has a change of time (with the same acronym, and is back at Brighton Business School’s Mithras House.
Going back can also mean going forward. Moving to our new space is creating new conversations and impulses. We were very focused on innovation management in our history and though that is still at the heart of what many of our researcher team do, we have expanding in to becoming a Centre of Research Excellence (known as a CORE) and now also embrace Change and Enterprise (themes which were, and are, often part of our innovation management research.
Members of the “old” CENTRIM team are now closer to the teaching body at the Businsess School. The team were often involved in teaching where our expertise could enhance the content of many courses, a undergraduate and postgraduate level. Added to this are supervisions of student projects and the potential to link up with staff members who are engaging in research that joins up innovation, change and enterprise.
Our new space looks out over the Lewes Road, with traffic going by all the time. It also gives us all an opportunity to watch the new buildings going up and site redevelopment taking place.
This new blog will chart our journey, share our learning, help us to publicly reflect, pose challenging questions and is part of an invitation to link up with us as were learn more about change, enterprise and innovation management.
