The Doctorate in Organisational Change is a Professional Doctorate aimed at those who wish to work beyond the confines of conventional leadership as they develop radical new ways of contributing to the wider environment in which our organisations operate. Not only will participants develop their thought leadership as they offer unique contributions to the field of knowledge, they will also pursue innovative new practices and ways of working in organisations and institutions.

Action inquiry forms the bedrock of the Doctorate programme. Action research is the process of learning by doing. It puts YOU at the centre of your research. In this short clip, James Traeger answers the question "What is action research?"
Our Faculty Supervisors
Our faculty supervisors have decades of experience in organisational development, and through their own research and inquiry have made a profound impact in leadership development. They are published authors, Ted Talk speakers and prolific researchers.
