Strategy and Technology Management

About us

The Strategy and Technology Management (STM) Research Cluster focuses on issues that sit at the interface between the use of technology within organisations and the implications that those technologies can have. Researchers in this cluster are considering questions such as:

  • What is the role of technology in forming and implementing strategies?
  • How do socio-technical systems fail catastrophically and generate organisational crises in the process?
  • What are challenges associated with the management of digital transformations within organisations?
  • How do technological standards emerge?
  • What are the design processes around new business models?

We have a strong commitment to co-producing research aims, questions, contexts and possible outcomes through dialogue with the potential end users of the research. We have developed strong links with a range of appropriate professional bodies and communities of practice. We conduct our research in a variety of settings, including science enterprises, established multi-nationals, high-tech growth ventures, and the public sector.

From a teaching perspective, we ensure that our focus is research-led and in line with the school’s overarching aim of being a research-led and professionally focused business school.
