    Description: In resource-constrained environments universities increasingly must interact collaboratively and competitively to ensure financial stability. Such interactions are supported by the actions of senior university managers. This study investigated the extent and purpose of the interconnections between members of two groups of pro-vice chancellors (PVCs) with different responsibilities from an established grouping of 16 UK universities (the 1994 Group). Research and teaching occur in different environments, which elicited different actions from PVCs in the same university. PVCs responsible for teaching were almost entirely disconnected from one another, while those responsible for research presented a cohesive network. Drawing on the support of other PVCs, research PVCs collectively lobbied the Higher Education Funding Council for England to influence the resource environment for research, and in small groups secured research funds for their institution. The article argues that these...

    Description: With the global increase in networked forms of organizations come new challenges for the conceptualization and practice of management and leadership. Universities have a networked organizational form being composed internally of multiple groups with both complementary and conflicting characteristics and expectations, and interfacing externally with a wide range of different stakeholders. Eight pro-vice chancellors (PVC) from a formal network of chartered UK universities were interviewed. The PVC role comprised strategic and operational activities associated with their functional role, and representational and decision-making duties associated with their membership of the senior management team. All of these activities required them to operate across multiple internal and external boundaries, and especially emphasize the information processing and representational functions characteristic of boundary spanners. It is argued therefore that management and leadership roles in universities...

    Description: Purpose - Within the context of a sustainable supply chain, the purpose of this paper is to report on empirical longitudinal research on supply chain network evolution and dynamics of governance in a multi-stakeholder supply chain sustainability initiative led by Nespresso, the speciality coffee division of Nestlé.Design methodology approach - The paper proposes a framework to study the creation and evolution of governance mechanisms over a five-year period. Data from 48 semi-structured interviews and 15 recent and historic documents were also analysed. The interviews were conducted among current and past representatives of all the organisations concerned including coffee traders, NGOs and farmers.Findings - In contrast with literature on the subject, governance mechanisms initially relied mostly on informal mechanisms. Formal governance mechanisms were incorporated into the relationships to enable the supply chain network to grow and to provide clarity to all actors. Relational...

    Description: Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to identify the strategic options available to a weaker actor to counteract the dominance of a stronger actor in a buyer-supplier relationship, and identifies those factors that influence the choice of individual options. Design/methodology/approach – Following a systematic literature review methodology, a five-phase approach of planning, searching, screening, extraction and synthesis was rigorously employed. In total, 48 studies were used to draw conclusions about the phenomena of interest. Findings – Captured in an integrated conceptual framework, this study identified five strategic options available to the weaker actor in order to counteract a power dominance of a stronger player, which were underpinned by seven influencing factors. Research limitations/implications – The proposed conceptual framework requires first qualitative empirical validation using an abductive multi-case strategy,...

    Description: As university public funding diminishes so the need for private funding increases commensurately. We investigate how a purposive sample of 16 professional university fundraisers in Canada successfully secured large ($5m CAD) transformation donations from high-net-worth Canadian philanthropists. Using an inductive process, we articulate three key roles (the 3Ns - Networker, Negotiator and Knowledge-broker) professional fundraisers use for securing transformational gifts. Collectively, these roles indicate the relational nature of transformational giving; gifts arise from a co-created dyadic process of fundraiser-philanthropist interaction. The recommendations have major implications for how university development teams are developed, structured, trained and rewarded. We suggest further research investigates how trust develops between fundraisers and transformational gift-givers, and the motivations for transformational giving.

    Description: UK higher education policy relating to doctoral-level education assumes that student networks provide the basis for informal learning and the acquisition of necessary skills and information. Through semi-structured interviews with 17 doctoral students from a UK management school, this study investigated the value of these networks to students, the facilitators and barriers to network formation, and the causes of network formation and demise. Networks provided three opportunities: academic discussion, benchmarking progress and personal support. Networking was perceived to be most valuable when conducted face to face. Loss of formal structures and increasing independence of research projects over time contributed to network fragmentation. Network cohesion was enabled by 'physical presence', 'shared experience' and a sense of 'common purpose'. Suggestions for the development of structures to support cohesive doctoral networks are made.

    Description: Governments now expect universities to behave entrepreneurially generating revenues from the commercial exploitation of their intellectual assets ('third stream' income). This study questions whether this is possible for all universities in the UK and for all disciplines, or whether there are differences between institutions, between disciplines and even between disciplines in a single institution. Using research income from industry, charity and government departments for the period 1996-2000 as a proxy measure for third stream income, the performance of 16 UK institutions in four different disciplines (physics, engineering, history and education) was compared. Income from third stream sources varied significantly by institution and by discipline. There was also a significant disciplines × institution interaction, so that potential for generating third stream income cannot be predicted from either discipline or institution alone. A number of explanatory factors for this are considered,...

    Description: Doctoral education in the UK embraces both independent self-directed study and collective shared learning. The extent to which individual doctoral students remain isolated, or become integrated into a network of doctoral students, is a function of the attributes of the individual and the nature of the doctorate and its mode of delivery. Using the techniques of social network analysis, this cross-sectional study investigated the extent of the connections between doctoral students, and the purposes these connections served amongst the doctoral community, comprising full-time and part-time PhD and Doctor of Business Administration students at Cranfield School of Management. The study shows that ties between students served multiple purposes. Generally students were connected to others studying in the same mode and who entered at the same time. Connectivity was unaffected by nationality or gender.
