On May 3, 2016, the Telfer School of Management hosted the “Research in Management Forum: National Capital Region”, a joint event of the Telfer School of Management, the Sprott School of Business and the Université du Québec en Outaouais.

Michael Fung-Kee-Fung, Chief Cancer Transformation and Strategy Professor and Head of Surgical Oncology at the Ottawa Hospital, presented a keynote address on health transformation opportunities for business schools.

The event featured an elevator pitch competition by select graduate students from all three schools, in which they had 7 minutes to pitch their current research.

We would like to congratulate the winners:


1st place:           Robert Helal, PhD in Management, Carleton University

Runner-ups:       Jeff Jackson, PhD in Management, Carleton University

    Lily Murariu, PhD in Project Management, Université du Québec en Outaouais


The winning team of the 2016 National Capital Management Research Fund was announced; the recipients are Stéphane Gagnon (UQO), Gregory Richards (Telfer School) and Alejandro Ramirez (Sprott). The title of their forthcoming project is “Enabling the Agile Organization: Toward an Integrated Capability Model for Intelligent Applications Projects”.

The event was followed by a panel discussion on how to improve the impact of the research of business schools in the National Capital Region. This panel, moderated by Bruce Lazenby, President and CEO of Invest Ottawa, brought forward some interesting points on research collaboration and knowledge dissemination.
