StrategyStory’s work is underpinned by leading academic research, thanks to Donald’s significant experience in the field of Strategy and Strategic Management. This means that as well as academic insight informing our work, our learnings go back into the international research pot.

We specialise in action-research, a form of which Donald pioneered in the area of Management and Strategy. This approach enables us to work with people to:

- Resolve real, practical and often complex issues involving by multiple stakeholders
- Builds new capacity and capability in partner organisations
- Creates other forms of output for education and research.

“Donald exemplified that by gathering ideas and stories of our members and weaving them into a thread shows how the organisation can be made whole again.” Marga Biller, School of Graduate Education, Harvard University

This newer form of collaborative knowledge production is increasingly influential in:
•     policy terms to deliver social impact
•     practical terms to drive innovation

 

Donald has conducted research and development projects of this type with a range of private and public organisations, including the NHS, HMRC, The Scottish Health Advisory Service, Scottish Government Energy Directorate, British Geological Survey and Glasgow Centre for Population Health.

 

The Skunkworks

Because research is central to our business practise, we like to experiment and learn. We are also firm believers in the role of the arts and creativity. Check out some of our more artistic experiments in StrategyStory's Skunkworks!
