Thesis title: Learning at multidisciplinary leadership team innovation project meetings

Supervisors: Wayne COTTON , Peter REIMANN

Thesis abstract:

Multidisciplinary leadership teams worldwide are grappling with the complexities of implementing innovation that disrupts existing services and forces change.  Multidisciplinary team project meeting processes often fail to collect, store, regularly refer to and build on the learning and knowledge that takes place during the project, at meetings and within the team (Akgün, Byrne, Keskin & Lynn, 2006, Doganata & Topkara 2011, Fong 2003, van Ginkel & van Knippenberg 2008).  This research project argues that doing so would enhance group knowledge, memory and deepen learning experiences as professionals and as a multidisciplinary team. The aim of this PhD project is to examine connections between rich meeting summaries produced at team meetings and knowledge building. The project will research team meetings through the inclusion of notational systems for representing epistemic objects, maintenance of group memory, and rich meeting summaries.
