CIPD joins up with the Management Innovation Lab

The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) has teamed up with the new Management Innovation Lab - a partnership between the London Business School, the Woodside Institute, the David and Elaine Potter Charitable Foundation and the Advanced Institute of Management Research.

The Lab, founded by Professors Gary Hamel and Julian Birkinshaw, seeks to bring companies and scholars together to identify and build the management processes and practices that will generate sustainable competitive advantage.

Duncan Brown, CIPD assistant director general, said: "The Management Innovation Lab offers a direct line to practitioners and good practice. We're looking to use this to generate interesting and exciting learning, as well as engagement with thousands of managers.

"We like the way the Lab works. The traditional academic approach can leave research too distant from teaching and dissemination. This partnership will allow us to engage with dynamic research from the earliest stages, and offer feedback as that research progresses.

"The encouragement and management of innovation is an area of real relevance to many organisations. By working with the Lab, we'll be able to expand our own knowledge in this area, and share our learning with our members."

The Management Innovation Lab will produce a series of research reports for the CIPD using work conducted within UK and multinational organisations as source material. In addition, the two organisations will also collaborate on conferences and other activities.
