Professor Lynette Ryals, Director of the Demand Chain Management Community talks about how corporate membership research clubs at Cranfield support continuing professional development, and can positively impact those organisations involved by enabling new ways of working.
Join the club...
For almost fifty years, Cranfield School of Management has worked closely with industry to improve the practice of management. Our long-standing research clubs provide opportunities for debate and problem-solving as well as the chance to network with other industry professionals and business leaders. By meeting regularly and discussing issues of importance to club members, our research agenda is directly influenced by the preoccupations of managers.
"90% of research at Cranfield School of Management is 'internationally recognised' or better, with 40% rated 'internationally excellent' and 25% 'world leading' ... one of the world-leading aspects of our research environment is our engagement with industry and commerce."
