Experience

Dr Gary Graham is based at Leeds University Business School and is a member of TIGr and the Centre for Operations and Supply Chain Research. He is the Coordinator: Future Transport and Smart Cities Network (a membership of 40 international scholars and business practitioners, community workers).  His work to date focuses on the impact of the internet and digital technologies on supply chains, logistics and distribution operations. He has authored three books, thirty research papers and has worked on ESRC/EPSRC, British Academy, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and EU research grants investigating the economic and social consequences of disruptive innovation on the music, news media and information intensive sectors. His recent work focuses on the deployment of creative ethnographic “bridging techniques”.  This includes both between business and users and universities and communities. He deploys fictional prototyping/experimentation to bring extra attention to how organizations proactively reshape their relationships to external actors, and the users of technology thereby unlocking new pathways to create value from what they know and can do. In 2005, he was awarded by Emerald Publishers an Outstanding Guest Editor award for a SI he edited on: “SCM Evolution in the Creative Industries”. Graham was a Visiting International Research Scholar in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (October 2008; September 2011) and the School of Engineering at the University of California – Silicon Valley (February, 2009). Graham is co-chairing a strategy sub-themed steam of papers on “fictional prototypes” at the forthcoming British Academy of Management (BAM) 2013 conference, a PDW on “Organizing for Innovation through Fictional Prototyping” as part of the Technology and Innovation stream of the forthcoming:  American Academy of Management 2013 conference. Recently he organized a joint British Academy of Management/RCUK NEMODE + funded workshop entitled:  “Future technology and smartness imaging” in London on February 6 (2013). Finally Graham was invited on March the 27th by Dr Martin Power at the University of Limerick to give a public outreach lecture which took place in Moyross (housing estate).  This lecture is part of a public outreach programme Graham is currently organizing with Dr Greenhill at MBS, Dr Eve Coles,  Prof. Chee Wong & Prof. Gary Dymski here in Leeds. This is designed to frame a new academic community agenda that will build sustainable community partnership initiatives - focused on a range of cutting edge social and economic impact topics.
