Ashridge launches doctorate in organisation consulting

Ashridge Consulting has launched a new qualification programme - the Ashridge Doctorate in Organisation Consulting (ADOC)

Ashridge says the ADOC programme will be more participative and supportive than the traditional doctorate, developing a community of practitioners and faculty working together in workshops and master classes, supported by consulting and research supervision groups.

Professor Bill Critchley, ADOC Director, explains: "The doctorate is designed so that an individual's research will not only benefit their own practice and development, but contribute to a collective learning experience as well as to the body of theory in the field of organisational consulting. It is very much about shared learning."

The first programme with 13 participants started in June 2006, with a new programme due to start every two years.

Each participant is expected to develop a thorough understanding of the relevant body of existing theory, write convincingly for the wider community of practitioners about their learning and be able to work in practical settings in a way which provokes new levels of understanding in the consulting community.

Ashridge says the title of the DProf will be awarded upon successful completion of the doctorate.
