Centre for Organization and Time (COT)
Seminar on 'Impact of business school research'
October 26th 2021
In this seminar, Prof. Tima Bansal (Ivey Business School, Western University) and Prof. Alan Irwin (Copenhagen Business School) discussed their views on impact and the future of impact in the context of business schools.
On behalf of COT, PostDoc Miriam Feuls hosted the meeting.
Tima Bansal has been considering impact for decades. In 2003, she founded the Network for Business Sustainability – a network of over 35K followers that reaches across business and practices. And, in 2019, she founded Innovation North – a research lab involving 25 of Canada’s largest organizations. In both cases, she has thought deeply about the relationship between research and practice – both its challenges and its opportunities.
Alan Irwin approaches research impact as a Science & Technology Studies scholar with a special interest in citizen-science relations and in responsible innovation. He also has practical experience as a former dean of research at CBS, working with ‘business-in-society platforms’ among other initiatives. He is currently making slow but steady progress on a book with the provisional title, ‘Re-thinking the impact of business school research: from rigour and relevance to usable knowledge.
