Research Topic

Temporal Coordination within High Reliability Organisations

Identifying and effectively balancing safety with efficiency is of paramount importance to organisational functionality, particularly for institutions in which errors can lead to hazardous or even lethal outcomes. Inherently bound to the rhythm of organisational routine and reliability, is an overarching temporal presence that delineates working schedules, operations and processes. This research intends to ethnographically explore temporal structuring within a multi-professional and multi-temporal context; specifically, healthcare teams practising in the UK National Health Service (NHS).
