Dr Natalie Marguet is a Senior Lecturer at the School of Leadership and Organisational Development, where she is responsible for the development and delivery of modules on the MBA, and bespoke leadership courses. Her teaching relates to project management, research strategies, team dynamics, and systems thinking.
In the broadest sense, her research brings a psychological and systems thinking perspective to workplace settings helping individuals and groups improve their own awareness of factors that impact their behaviours and interactions. Ultimately, exposing the intricate dynamics and demonstrating that when individuals are mindful they are able to adapt and become effective, not only as decision-makers, problem solvers but at collaborators and influencers.
One of her current research projects is funded by the Association for Project Management titled ‘Capturing and evaluating individual and social factors that influence critical project decisions’. This research strives to understand how real-time project decisions can be captured, mapped and measured to gain insights into the ways that decisions are made in a project context.
Natalie has also successfully delivered a 20 month Knowledge Transfer Partnership for a social enterprise which set out to deliver an innovative procurement process framework to improve project brief development, project cost predictions and improve control within the companies supply chain. Prior to joining academia in 2010, Natalie worked for 10 years across a number of sectors including; transport and financial services and has held a number of managerial positions. Her background influences her approach to research as she focused on research impact for practice. Natalie welcomes connections from those with overlapping interests, both from industry and academia.
