Can business schools gain advisory skills?

By   November 2, 2018

Recent literature shows that within UK it has become common practice for business schools to position themselves in the center of their local business communities, ecosystems and business parks and to invest knowledge and business values within them.

In order to accommodate and successfully make this transition, business schools must undertake a series of changes to their operating models. These adjustments are also necessary to enable the schools to cope with new challenges associated with their more much complex role.

The strategic challenge for Hertfordshire Business School becomes identifying how should it optimise its working model, with respect to the process of creating value and stimulating innovation within the local business communities, to enable the Hertfordshire business ecosystem to reshape and to position the school in its epicentre.
