Dr Heather Round is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Management in Deakin Business School. Heather has spent over 23 years working on large-scale projects within government, public and private organisations in the UK, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, where she worked primarily in a management-consulting role. In the past, she has led and implemented a number of large-scale organisational transformation programmes, which included people, technology and process change.
Over the years, Heather’s focus has been on facilitating organisational change and developing management capabilities, in particular looking at the individual and team processes around creativity and innovation. She believes that her depth of knowledge of organisations and extensive working experience provides for a richer learning experience in the classroom as she is able to show students how the theoretical constructs they are being taught have real-life implications. In addition, she continues to consult organisations on an ongoing basis and has found that her academic research is useful in informing practice.Read more on Heather's profile
