Do you have the feeling that you can “see” the paradigms behind arguments put forward and the values from which they are constructed, however, the more powerful and articulate the debater, the more skilfully resistant to revelation these paradigms and values become?
If you take one course on your PhD journey, RRBM is most worthy of your precious time.
Lift the veil on system change. As a seasoned professional with executive and life experience of system change, and now a doctoral candidate, I cannot applaud RRBM enough for sowing the seeds of system change in academic research. RRBM course leaders skilfully guide participants through extremely dense, yet critical material, to lift the academic veil on the transformation processes of our time.
Crystalize your stance. In response to current societal calls for systems change, the course elevates the business and management research perspective towards a “systems view” of research impact. It helps you uncover your stance – the ontology, epistemology, axiology – that shapes your research impact by design. Though hard work, the course is immensely rewarding, paving the way for crystalizing your research impact.
Grow your tribe. RRBM attracts a great bunch of academic peers with whom to “thresh” these critical issues in a warm and welcoming environment that quickly builds academic relationships and friendships.
Prepare for defence. RRBM helps to make clear and transparent arguments for the appropriate role of values in research design. I have no doubt that RRBM is the ultimate preparation for early planning of responsible research and its later successful defence.
Research with impact. What makes the RRBM course unique, is the explicit focus on system change and what constitutes responsible research. The RRBM course is an absolute must for any Doctoral Researcher intending to contribute to the most critical challenges of our time.
