The Narrative Lab and Cogntive Edge are pleased to announce their partnership with the University of Stellenbosch Business School to pursue joint research programmes and delivery of courses in South Africa.
Recently Cognitive Edge (CE), The Narrative Lab (TNL) and the University of Stellenbosch Business School (USB) established a partnership with two purposes:
* Provision of SenseMaker® and support services for research purposes on selected programmes at USB
* Joint conduct of a Cognitive Edge accreditation workshop at the University of Stellenbosch Business School on an annual basis
USB pursues several themes in its research and teaching at the School with masters students. Three themes have been nominated for inclusion in this initial construct of the partnership – Strategy as Practice; Leadership; and Coaching. Under the partnership, students in these themes will use Cognitive Edge’s software tool, SenseMaker®, to complete primary research. The aggregated fragments will then be available for secondary research by academics at USB. The aggregated fragments will also be made available to the Cognitive Edge Network, to encourage them to share insights based on their own research using the fragments collected and signified by the students.
The first Cognitive Edge accreditation course to be conducted at USB is anticipated in Q1 2011. Information on this course can be obtained from Sonja Blignaut or Aiden Choles at TNL.
To obtain more information about this partnership, please contact Marius Ungerer at USB, Sonja Blignaut or Aiden Choles at TNL or Steve Bealing at CE.
