The study of strategy is now firmly established in the wider management and organization literature, yet the strategist is often notable by their absence in studies and findings. This seminar will focus on the role of the strategist and how they, as story teller, can influence the development of strategic intent in their organization. Strategy research often switches between organization, group and individual depending on the level of analysis that is being conducted. Organizations are sometimes inappropriately treated as though they were sentient, and there is relatively little research targeting the individual level despite calls to establish a so-called micro foundation within the field. The net result moves the strategist from a position at the edge of our thinking to their rightful place at the heart of strategy as a subject of academic enquiry. Robert MacIntosh is Head of the School of Social Sciences at Heriot-Watt University. He trained as an engineer and has researched strategy development and strategic change for twenty years, publishing extensively in top rank journals. He sits on the Council of the British Academy of Management, is a board member for the charity Turning Point Scotland and for Heriot-Watt University Malaysia as well as being a Fellow of the Institution of Engineering and Technology and of the Academy of Social Sciences. His books include “Managing Change” published by Cambridge University Press and "Strategic Management: strategists at work" published by Palgrave. His status as a shareholder in Aberdeen Football Club demonstrates his sense of optimism. For more information, contact Professor Lynne Jack L.B.Jack@hw.ac.uk event 20 0 0 0 0 0 20 0 0 20 2017-11-27

“I find that working with people is the hardest thing to do, albeit the most satisfying. Getting to know my staff and my students is something I make an effort to do as I think this is integral to serving them better. For example, what do my staff like? In my previous university, most loved coffee and we often sit down together to discuss issues or simply vent out frustrations. Here, most prefer chocolate or green tea! Knowing your staff really helps you to understand them. This way, you appreciate them better and they would appreciate you better too. The same goes for students. What are their aspirations? What issues do they face? What do they like or dislike? How can we help them? Many ask me – aren’t we supposed to focus on organisational goals and efficiency? Knowing the people around you and engaging them IS the way to achieving goals and efficiency. Engaging is the key word here...” Dr Wardah Mohamad is Associate Head of School of Social Sciences (SoSS) and Programme Director of Edinburgh Business School (EBS). Wardah believes that making emotional connection is one of the most important leadership skills and an integral part in developing human connection.

How much time do you spend checking your Facebook or social media every day? And how frequent do you check your social media? Most of us will say, “A lot!” But are all the time we spend on social media wasted? Not at all. As we spend time on social media, we interact with others in various forms, and these interactions may involve giving and receiving social support. There are also gender differences in the preference for source of social support, whether you receive social support from a friend or a stranger on social media. My collaborators (my thesis supervisees) and I demonstrated these gender differences in an experimental study. Please check the link below for more information. http://psycnet.apa.org/buy/2015-31822-001 --- Dr Teoh Ai Ni's research focuses on Health Psychology with an overarching research goal to examine psychological and cardiovascular responses to stress, including how social support buffers stress and increases motivation in stressful situations of varying task engagement levels.

“TELL ME AND I FORGET, TEACH ME AND I MAY REMEMBER, INVOLVE ME AND I LEARN.” – Benjamin Franklin "This quote has never failed to inspire and motivate me throughout my career. Before joining academia, I was a practising engineer in the industry for more than a decade. Over the past few years, I have been heavily involved in academic and industrial-related research on sustainable development as well as health and safety. My research primarily focuses on wastewater engineering and contaminated land management. This has truly allowed me to appreciate the meaning of ‘lifelong learning’ in contributing to the well-being of society."

Jane Goodall once said, “You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.” This quote moved me because it speaks about our responsibility to take action. However, taking action is not always a straight forward thing to do. A lot of issues around green building development originates from ‘soft elements’ we don’t realise. So I study these abstract elements and how they influence decision behaviour. As a quantity surveyor, I’ve learned how to assess building cost based on its construction. As a researcher, I’ve learned how to understand cost based on decision interpretation. As a woman, I’ve learned that we’re empowered to make choices to advocate change and see beyond the limits.
