1:00 pm - Introduction and Overview of ANU Research School of Management and Postgraduate Programs (Professor Giles Hirst)

Whether you are an experienced professional wanting a qualification to help advance your career, or a recent graduate continuing on an academic pathway, a postgraduate qualification from the ANU Research School of Management will help you open more doors to a brilliant career.

1:15pm - Evidence-Based Management (Associate Professor Alessandra Capezio)

Our postgraduate management programs integrate principles of Evidence-Based Practice in Management (EBMgt). EBMgt is at the cutting edge of global business education, providing the groundwork for future leaders. EBMgt involves the conscientious, explicit and judicious use of the best available evidence about and within business organisations for decision-making. In this masterclass, you will learn the theory behind how to translate principles from best evidence to management practice.

Bias and error often contaminate managers’ perceptions and judgements, which guide and inform action and decision-making. Learning EBM principles and skills helps managers engage in critical analytical thinking, improve their decision awareness, and make decisions based on the best available evidence. The aim of this session is to introduce the basic EBM principles and skills, and to understand how these skills can be applied to management practice, in particular people management. This session will provide an insight to the emergence of EBM in the world of business.

The ANU currently offers a more comprehensive EBM teaching through postgraduate level programs for leaders and managers who want to:

• Enhance their critical analytical thinking.

• Improve their research skills within an evidence-based management framework.

• Strengthen their decision making quality and awareness by applying the best available evidence to a practical issue or problem.

2:10pm - Willpower (Senior Lecturer, Dr David Cheng)


In our fast paced ever changing world being able to resist temptations and continually strive for the next goal is important to our careers and personal lives. Yet doing this is not always easy. Success in studies, dieting, personal relationships, saving money and achieving difficult goals all require willpower and surveys report that a lack of willpower as a key obstacle for personal change and improvement. But what is willpower and how does it work? In this session we will cover some of the research on willpower and discuss ways in which you can improve your willpower to better succeed in your career and life.

3:20 pm - Co-creation in the Modern Marketing Era (Senior Lecturer, Dr Stephen Dann)

Marketing in the modern era is driven by the ability to collaborate with the customer through co-creation, whether formally through structured R & D processes, or informally through acknowledging and accepting how customers have come to use the product. Co-creation led marketing is a conscious strategic approach, driven by evidence from a range of market sources, to empower and support the customer in their goal of getting value from your product – even if that wasn’t entirely what you had planned for when you pitched to the audience.
