Dermot Breslin - "Premonition: The Predictive Modelling of Behavioral Changes in Communities"

In this talk, Dermot Breslin (University of Sheffield, UK) will discuss the Premonition story from theoretical research to organizational application. Drawing on conceptual work in which community change is viewed as a system of coevolving agents, an agent-based computer model has been created for the South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service (SYFR) to simulate and predict change within the Sheffield city region. SYFR are currently using the model to plan intervention strategies aimed at reducing incidents of fire. Dermot will discuss the theory behind the model, and demonstrate the application of the model for local government agencies.

Dermot Breslin and Johan Kask - "Discussing Co-Evolutionary Research in Management Studies"


In this seminar, Dermot Breslin (University of Sheffield) and John Kask (Örebro University) will outline the inception and subsequent diffusion of co-evolutionary research in management studies, with a specific focus on a number of co-evolutionary accounts in the new Millennium. Drawing on an extensive review of literature, key questions are addressed including; What is co-evolving? What parties and causal relationships are involved? And what processes? The analysis reveals substantive paucity in explicating what processes most vividly underpin co-evolution in management research.

2018-03-15 10.00-12.00 N3053

Dermot Breslin - "How to publish a literature review in a leading management journal"

IJMR is the leading global review journal in business and management, with an impact factor of 5.578, and with 57% of paper downloads being within Europe. Dermot will discuss the publication criteria, the peer review process, common mistakes made and how authors can enhance their conceptual contribution.
