Delahaye, Brian L., Choy, Sarojni C., & Saggers, Beth (2010) Developing managers as researchers using a learning cohort approach. In Proceedings of : 24th Annual Australian and New Zealand Academy of Management Conference : Managing for Unknowable Futures, Adelaide, S. Aust..
This paper describes the design process and curriculum for a learning cohort of eight managers who came from public and private providers of vocational education and training. While the authors found no discussion on developing research knowledge and skills of managers using learning cohorts, the general learning cohorts literature provided a number of recommendations for learning cohort design. The initial stages of the learning cohort were evaluated. The results highlighted the importance of clarifying the psychological contract and its use in self-selection, supported the recommendations in the literature of the significance of the careful design and implementation of an initial residential workshop and also found support for further residential workshops of a similar design. The attendance of the cohort members in tow faculty wide core research units drew mixed comments.
