Dr Beverley Lloyd-Walker

PhD (Monash), GradCert (AGSM), GradDipAppldSc (Deakin), GradDipEduc (HIE), BBus (CIT)

Adjunct Senior Lecturer, College of Business

During the last few years Beverley has concentrated her research on 'people in temporary organisations'. This change in the emphasis of her research within the project-based Australian economy has led to two grants and several publications.

Research grants from the Alliancing Association of Australasia ($38,000) and from the Project Management Institute ($50,000) have led to two refereed journal articles, one refereed chapter and five refereed conference papers as well as three reports.

Beverley will spend September 2013 at the Umeå School of Business, Umeå University, Umeå, Sweden, as part of an Erasmus Mundus Scholarship. This will provide her with the opportunity to speak about the findings of her research to the global Masters in Strategic Project Management (Europe) students and academic staff at Umeå School of Business as well as advancing joint research projects with members of staff.

Beverley is also a member of the editorial board for the Asia-Pacific Journal of Business Administration.
