Managing capabilities for research centres in the UK's manufacturing sector: from literature review to a conceptual framework

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

This study uncovers the knowledge gaps regarding the capability management of research centers in the UK manufacturing sector. The paper presents some key findings from systematic literature review and introduces a novel framework that will improve the decision making process related to capability development and strategy building which are the two main challenges for the UK manufacturing research centers. The findings presented in this paper highlight the need for and the key elements of such a framework and the benefits that it will bring to a research center’s capability management, e.g. more effective evaluation of capabilities and comprehensive understanding of development of those capabilities. It also identified knowledge gap related to management of technology capability from a research centre perspective. At the moment there is a lack of standardized framework (or approach) that is easy to use and applicable to research centres in the manufacturing sector. The paper presents findings from systematic literature review and introduces a novel framework that will improve the decision making process related to capability development and strategy building in the manufacturing research centers.
