10th International Critical Management Studies Conference – 2017, Edge Hill University - July 2017

Thanks to an invitation from Professor Arvind Singhal, of the University of Texas at El Paso and Hedmark University of Applied Sciences, Norway, Jane Lewis contributed a paper to Stream 46 – Deviance in Management and Organisation Studies.

Her paper is about how, even in highly regulated environments, it is possible to find examples of “positive deviance”.  She explains how these can be harnessed to improve performance and solve tough problems, at minimal cost, drawing on her own experience, and the experiences of Merck, Goldman Sachs and a European bank.

The paper is written as a research paper, and a summary will soon be published on our website.  Click on the icon to download the full paper. pdf download pdf file

Boosting engagement and productivity with positive deviance - joint workshop with CIPD Sussex Branch - January 2017

Julie Tidbury and Jane Lewis facilitated an interactive session on positive deviance, and how it helped with staff engagement, productivity and evidence-based practice.  Julie told how positive deviance, as Hidden Insights, had helped her reframe the way mental health services were offered to young people in West Sussex, and how the three key questions had helped her recruit a high quality team.  She asked them about the small and practical ways that they had found to make a difference to young people’s lives.

This raised a lot of interest and we hope to do another session for the CIPD next year.
