Sir Roger Bone, President of Boeing UK, presents the 12th annual Management Lecture

Thursday, March 29th, 2012

The 12th annual Management Lecture took place in the Octagon Centre on 21st March and featured Sir Roger Bone, President of Boeing UK.

Sir Roger discussed Boeing´s global structure and supply chain management, as well as the company´s latest products, such as the 787 Dreamliner passenger plane.

The Management Lecture is a joint venture between the Management School and Sheffield Business School at Sheffield Hallam University. This year, the Management Lecture formed part of the launch of Sheffield’s Global Manufacturing Festival.  The Global Manufacturing Festival is a great forum for businesses operating in high technology, high quality, export-led manufacturing supply chains. Due to their active involvement in supporting new technology and innovations within the supply chain through high level research output, both the Management School and the University are strong supporters of the Global Manufacturing Festival.

Ian Proctor, Head of Business Development and External Relations at the Management School, said: “This was a fascinating insight into high level manufacturing and we were delighted the lecture was so well attended. Both the Management School and the University are very committed to working with businesses, regionally, nationally and internationally and are very actively involved with the local community. The lecture stimulated a great deal of lively discussion and was well received by all who attended.”

Master Cutler Pam Liversidge launched the Global Manufacturing Festival at the event and was joined by Titan the robot who entertained guests with some songs and a dance before they took their seats for the Management Lecture.

Professor Keith Glaister, Dean of the Management School, said: “We were delighted to welcome Sir Roger Bone, President of Boeing UK, as our speaker at this year’s Management Lecture.  The combination of Sir Roger’s experience within the diplomatic service coupled with his profile as a leading industrialist with expertise in aerospace made for a fascinating evening.”

The Sheffield Management Lecture June 2008

Thursday, June 19th, 2008

The Sheffield Management Lecture 2008 was another successful event in this series of annual lectures. Speaker, John Seddon, educated and entertained the audience of nearly 450 people with an exposition of the problems associated with managing by targets.

Citing many examples of failures of management attempting to comply with ministerial target setting – the so called “Command and Control” approach – John instead proposed a model where “flows” are managed rather than costs.

His entertaining oratory style went down well with the assembled members of the region’s business community.

Keith Glaister, Dean of the University of Sheffield Management School said “I was delighted at the success of the Management School lecture. John Seddon gave a provocative presentation which stimulated wide-ranging discussion and debate. John was able to integrate management practice with an academic perspective based upon his experience with private and public sector bodies and organisations.”
