Use-it-Wisely's Community of Practice

Collaboration for Innovation: Use It Wisely’s Sector Connector Community

Collaboration between previously unconnected sectors has emerged as one of the main benefits of the Use-It-Wisely project. Industrial, SME, academic and research partners have connected their thinking and ways of working to address challenges and objectives they didn’t even know they had in common. This has inspired UIW partners to think outside the box and apply tools and methods from a completely different sector to their own business, with surprising results. Read more

Ocean Shipyards

Keeping Tourism Afloat

Ocean Shipyard is a family-run business whose history can be traced back almost a hundred years. The father and grandfather of Vassilis Stratis founded Ocean and started out supplying small wooden fishing boats to fishermen in Northern Greece. Vassilis now works with his father in a state of the art shipyard just outside Athens in Greece, supplying a range of vessels, from passenger boats for the tourism industry, to boats for personal and recreational use, as well as industrial and professional uses.

Abstract
We explain that the extant framing of research relevance is skewed because it is centred upon irrelevance of much research knowledge to practitioners, while excluding or under emphasising the irrelevance of much practice knowledge to practitioners. Moreover, the current framing is skewed because the extant literature disregards the very common collaboration between researchers and practitioners. In addition, we explain that the current framing of research relevance is indistinct because theory, practice, and relevance are discussed in vague terms rather than specific terms. Furthermore, the current framing of research relevance is indistinct because there is little reference to theory knowledge. We argue that current skewed and indistinct framing obscures the complexity of relevance. As a result, overly simplistic assertions have been made about how relevance can be increased. We broaden and balance the framing of research relevance. We provide greater specificity in the explanation of factors that contribute to the complexity of relevance. We provide recommendations for addressing the complexity of relevance.

http://www.emeraldinsight.com/doi/abs/10.1108/IJMPB-02-2015-0014

Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to inform information and communication design (ICD) for multi-national projects through the presentation of an example that does not rely on expensive expertise in graphic design.
Design/methodology/approach: Action research involving participants from five different sectors.

Findings: Successful ICD is not necessarily dependent upon costly graphic design of elaborate explanatory methods such as storyboards.

Research limitations/implications: The action research involved participants from only five differect sectors.

Practical implications: Economical ICD can facilitate development of understanding among multi-sector multi-national project participants.

Originality/value: The originality of this research note is that it addresses recent developments in ICD. The value of this research note is that an example is provided of application in a multi-sector multi-national project.

Fox, S. (2015) Relevance: a framework to address preconceptions that limit perceptions of what is relevant. International Journal of Managing Projects in Business, 8(4), 804 – 812.
http://www.emeraldinsight.com/doi/abs/10.1108/IJMPB-05-2015-0040

Purpose: Erroneous perceptions of relevance contribute to business projects not being successful. Although the importance of relevance is recognized in the project management literature, thus far there has not been a formal framework for addressing erroneous perceptions of relevance. The purpose of this paper is to introduce a framework for identifying and counteracting erroneous perceptions of relevance.

Design/methodology/approach: The research comprised review of the literature relating to factors that contribute to, and methods that counteract, erroneous perceptions of relevance.

Findings: Contributory factors to erroneous perceptions of relevance include cultural cognition, path dependencies, lock-ins, fads, and hype. Mediating factors include priming and questioning, counterfactual reasoning, and optimal stopping.

Research limitations/implications: A classification of erroneous perceptions of relevance is introduced Type III (inept positive) errors, Type II (false negative) errors, and Type I (false positive) errors. This terminology has the advantage of already being known to academics through statistical hypothesis testing, and to practitioners through process capability studies.

Practical implications: The introduction of a framework for identifying and counteracting erroneous perceptions of relevance can better enable practitioners to make the selection of relevant concepts and technologies for projects – a capable process.

Originality/value: The originality of this research note is that it provides a framework that can be applied to increase objectivity in perceptions of relevance. The value of this research note is that it introduces a framework for identifying and counteracting erroneous perceptions of relevance before the application of methods such as cost-benefit analysis.

The University of Málaga (UMA, Universidad de Málaga) is a public university established in 1972. UMA’s campus is situated in the city of Málaga, on the south coast of Spain. Málaga university counts almost 40,000 students and 2,000 researchers.

The history of the University of Málaga begins in 1968 with the creation of the Association of Friends of the University of Málaga (Asociación de Amigos de la Universidad de Málaga). This association sought the creation of the university because of the needs of the city (it was the only European city of over 300,000 inhabitants which did not have a university.) The University of Málaga was founded by decree of 18 August 1972 by grouping existing centers in the late 1960s: the Polytechnic University of Málaga (Spanish: Escuela Universitaria Politécnica) established in 1928, the Normal School, the Faculty of Economics and the Seminar.

At the time of creation, the university provided the Faculty of Economics and Business and the Faculty of Medicine, which was created after the ratification of the decree. Its first location was the El Ejido Campus, along with several administrative centres around the city. After several years of constant change has become a public university with an average of 37,000 students enrolled each year (2002) and 4000 graduates per year (2002) working side by side with 1,800 researchers (2001).

The University of Nottingham (informally known as Nottingham University) is a public research university based in Nottingham, England, the United Kingdom. It was founded as University College Nottingham in 1881 and granted a Royal Charter in 1948.

Nottingham’s main campus, University Park, is situated on the outskirts of the City of Nottingham, with a number of smaller campuses and a teaching hospital (Queen’s Medical Centre) located elsewhere in Nottinghamshire. Outside the United Kingdom, Nottingham has campuses in Semenyih, Malaysia and Ningbo, China. Nottingham is organised into five constituent faculties, within which there are more than 50 departments, institutes and research centres. Nottingham has around 34,000 students and 9,000 staff and had a total income of £520 million in 2012/13, of which £100 million was from research grants and contracts.

As of 2013 the university was ranked 24th nationally and 157th internationally by Times Higher Education. A 2014 survey suggested it is the most targeted university by the UK’s top employers. In 2012 Nottingham was ranked 13th in the world in terms of the number of alumni listed among CEOs of the Fortune Global 500. It is also ranked 2nd (joint with Oxford) in the 2012 Summer Olympics table of British medal winners. In the 2011 GreenMetric World University Ranking, Nottingham was the world’s most sustainable campus.

Among the university’s alumni is the author DH Lawrence. It is a member of the Association of Commonwealth Universities, the Virgo Consortium, the European University Association, the Russell Group, Universities UK, Universitas 21 and participates in the Sutton Trust Summer School programme.
