I know the bibliography usually comes at the end, but some of you have asked for this so I’m posting it now.  Hope it’s helpful.  There are weblinks where the material is/was available online for free or as part of a journal subscription, or via Amazon for books. p.s. If you don’t have a journal […]

Abstract and acknowledgements

January 10, 2012


This weekend I will print “the thing”, otherwise known as 101 pages of thesis.  It’s been proofed to within an inch of its life, in terms of spelling and grammar. Moreover, the copyright issue is now resolved.  You may remember that I had concerns about “handing” copyright to the University, as their guidelines seemed to […]

One Thesis. Drafted.

January 3, 2012


The thesis is drafted. Once again I’m in a quandary about how to share some of it before it gets marked, for fear of being accused of cheating (either from myself or because someone uses something).  So i’m going to use my old trick of static pictures of some of the text, and ask you […]

Surveys Closed!

October 4, 2011


I’ve closed the surveys. Thank you so much to those who helped me get qualified responses!

(Well, […]

One down… :-)

September 22, 2011


I’ve closed the questionnaire for Resilience Departments!  It was the smaller survey, added at the last minute to answer some questions my literature review could not.  I got enough responses to provide the data I need and so it was time to close it so I can download the data.  Hooray! The Organisational Leadership for […]
