I'm undertaking a part-time PhD at the University of Warwick, supervised by Mick Hammond and Pontso Moorosi that began in November 2015 and is anticipated to complete for December 2019.
Whilst studying part-time, Matt deputises for WMG UG Programme Directors working with WMG and Warwick University stakeholders to grow the strength of the WMG UG provision. Matt Chairs and Deputy Chairs a variety of academic panels and validation events whilst helping to support the teams efforts across quality, consistency, governance, and accreditation activity.
The 21st Century is enriched with various facets of Advanced Information Technology (AIT) such as the Internet, e-mail, virtual teams, data analytics, artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, etc. I have always maintained that technologies [existing, emerging, and future (un)planned] should not solely be confined and managed by the technical / IT (Information Technology) department but rather embraced by the whole organisation in a purposeful way, promoted by all levels of organisational leadership. My PhD explores the role of technology and its impact upon leadership influence.
