11/22/2019 11:00 am 11/22/2019 12:30 pm Australia/Melbourne Hybrid Managers/Professional identity influence: 2 UK Health Projects

The International Consortium for Research in Employment and Work (iCREW) within the Centre for Global Business, Monash Business School, Monash University invites you to attend hybrid Managers/Professional identity influence: 2 UK Health Projects.

This seminar will include two short research presentations and a discussion led by visitors from Warwick University, UK (Monash University’s partner in the Monash Warwick Alliance).

1. The paradoxes of hybrid middle managers: performing and belonging
How do hybrid managers negotiate the paradoxes inherent in their role? In particular, how do they negotiate the dual paradoxes of belonging (managerial vs professional identity) and performing (managerial vs professional work)? This seminar considers the case of nurse managers, where the complexities of hybrid roles are at the fore.
Charlotte Croft is an Associate Professor at Warwick Business School, UK. Her research focuses on issues of identity, leadership and collaboration in professionalised settings. Her work has been published in a range of world leading journals, such as Organisation Studies, Human Relations, and Public Administration.

2. The Influence of professional identity upon absorptive capacity: the case of healthcare
There is a lack of research about the effects of organisational context in general and that of the professionalised context specifically to absorb new knowledge and improve innovation. Moreover, approaches to ensure new knowledge is used and improve innovation practices haven’t sensitised to the problem of professions, nor has the context of professional organisation, and its underpinning dimensions relating to professional identity. Our study seeks to address this research gaps and provide insight into how the dimensions of professional identity impact upon the development, implementation and scale up of knowledge-based innovation.
Dimitrios Spyridonidis is an Associate Professor of Leadership and Innovation at Warwick Business School, UK. Dimitrios’ core research interests are Leadership and Innovation. Within these, current themes include leadership and leadership development, innovation and strategic change in professionalised organisations. His research has been published in leading academic journal including Organisation Studies, Public Administration, Human Relations and Human Resource Management Journal.

The Discussant: Bernard Crump is a Professor in Medical Leadership at Warwick Medical School. After studying medicine and then years in clinical practice and research, he returned to postgraduate training in public health medicine. He spent a decade as Director of Public Health in Birmingham, and in Leicestershire, where he was also Deputy CEO. He became CEO of Shropshire & Staffordshire Strategic Health Authority, until being appointed the first CEO of the UK National Health Service (NHS) Institute for Innovation and Improvement. The NHS Institute has developed a wide range of programmes supporting the improvement of the NHS, the Productive Ward and the Productive Series, the No Delays Achiever and commissioners. He has written and lectured on a range of topics in healthcare, including aspects of population health, the role of clinicians in management, health and healthcare improvement, the use of metrics in encouraging improvement and the use of health economics in decision-making.
