The partnership between University of Gloucestershire and Applied Change has big ambitions: to improve collaboration between multi-national businesses and research establishments

A new partnership, borne out of the Growth Hub, is forging new links for University of Gloucestershire and Nailsworth based international Change Management Consultancy - Applied Change. What’s more the partnership has big ambitions: to improve collaboration between multi-national businesses and research establishments.

Applied Change Consultant and Senior Partner Mark Vincent is working alongside Senior Lecturer Josie Truscott and Occupational Psychology Masters Students at the University of Gloucestershire to provide much needed practical and strategic business foundation to their studies.

Applied Change has worked with global clients including the major music labels and publishing companies throughout the past 20 years while the Internet and Digitisation have made those industries barely recognisable from what they were. They are using that experience to support the Occupational Psychology students with real world scenarios, based on their experience within rapidly changing sectors. They are benefiting from pioneering, University backed research into change leadership and psychology.

Mark Vincent said: “What we are trying to achieve, aside from developing our own Change Management Models and building on the research, is to break down perceived barriers between the businesses world and research establishments such as the University of Gloucestershire. We are hoping to lead the way and show the benefits of closer collaboration both in terms of the research itself and in the development of students into well-rounded future business leaders.

Josie Truscott, concluded: “The situation right now is that businesses are not making nearly enough of the resources available in research establishments for a number of reasons. Through this partnership with Applied Change we are helping our students to have a meaningful impact on the business world while they are studying and to help them emerge at the end well equipped and ready to develop their careers. We see this as a win-win for us and for Applied Change, as it should be.”
