This is an exciting new opportunity to join the Lancaster University Management School (LUMS) Knowledge Exchange (KE) Team to lead on the design and delivery of KE activity designed to tackle the challenges facing organisations, providing opportunities for systemic change as well as unlocking innovation and growth potential.
