The reality check

  • We deliver research according to a plan which is usually tied to its funding. Not failing at this job absolutely requires managing and delivering research projects to a high level of quality and on time, providing intellectual leadership, guidance and also getting your hands dirty.
  • We develop research with the aim of having an impact in the world of business. The willingness and ability to write papers that people might want to read beyond academia is essential.
  • Making an impact with our research also requires dissemination. The ability to speak not only well and clearly in public, but also to a non-academic audience and through non-standard formats including webinars and the trade press is important.
  • Good research costs money. Your ability and experience raising research funding, especially from the private sector on an unsolicited basis, and manage the relationship with research sponsors is important as well.
