The Centre for Workplace Leadership undertakes research that helps organisations lead workplace innovation and performance across the value chain. Our work sits within three intersecting themes:
Leading Operational Excellence Across the Supply Chain
Managing and sustaining operational excellence within the organisation and across extended supply chain networks poses considerable leadership challenges as well as opportunities for all types of organisations.
Leading the Organisation and its People
Organisations across all industry sectors are adopting new business models, restructuring their operations, offering different products and services, and applying new technologies that are profoundly reshaping the organisation of work and jobs.
Leading Market Performance
The ways in which organisations create value for customers is changing rapidly as firms experiment with co-creation business models and allow increasing external participation in the value creation process.
The Ruthven Institute Hub
The RI Hub is an alliance between the University of Melbourne and the Ruthven Institute centred on research and curriculum development to improve the profitability and sustainable success of Australian businesses.
