About the speaker
"Tim Donnet is a Lecturer at QUT Business School’s School of Management, with broad research interests in the area of Governance. His research focuses mainly on the identification, advocacy and protection of strategic and public values – particularly in the context of airports and aviation. Recent research has extended Tim’s expertise in Social Network Analysis to investigate the public, private and government networks that underpin nutrition policy making in Australia, resulting in journal articles published in world-leading health journals (including Obesity Reviews and Public Health Nutrition). Current research interests include interdisciplinary problems that span planning, governance, and business models that incorporate technology into decision making and operational processes. He has worked with Ballina Shire Council to consult on strategies for airport-centric economic growth, with the private sector to provide commercial research reports for improving decision making and policy agendas for aviation in Queensland, and with international collaborators to deliver a technical report for the Dutch Ministry for Transport.
More than ever before, business continuity sits at the centre of business thinking and decision making as organisations try to survive (and potentially thrive) the disruptions created by COVID-19. This Masterclass uses real world examples and vignettes to explore how the decision making principles embedded in the two leading theories of risk management, High Reliability Theory and Normal Accident Theory, can assist managers to make appropriate decisions in preparing for, surviving through, and recovering from major disruptions to business.
