Profile

Biography

Jill MacBryde is Professor of Operations Management.  Jill joined The York School of Management in August 2014 from Strathclyde Business School where she was Vice-Dean for Knowledge Exchange.

The theme throughout Jill’s work is innovation and performance improvement in manufacturing firms. Today very few manufacturers in developed economies are successfully competing on the basis of price alone. Instead they need to adapt their operations to be able to compete on other value propositions - including innovation, design, and service. Current research activity is focused around understanding how companies (particularly small to medium sized manufacturers) adapt their operations and make this transition into “high value manufacturing”.

Jill engages in collaborative research, often reaching across disciplinary boundaries and has led many research projects worth over £3m. To date she has secured seven EPSRC grants (5 as Principal Investigator), four ESRC grants (one as PI, three as co-investigator), one EU FP7 grant (co-investigator at lead institution). She has also been involved in the management of 10 KTP projects.

Engaging in collaborative research with colleagues in leading UK and European Universities, Jill disseminates her research output widely and has published over 20 journal papers and over 55 conference papers and 3 contributions to research books.

Jill’s “laboratory” is industry and she engages in useful research whilst at the same time helping to bring about significant improvements in manufacturing firms. Jill strives to ensure that her academic research and knowledge exchange activities feed off each other. Students also benefit from the high levels of industry engagement.  Jill has held external examiner roles at Warwick Business School responsible for Operations Management undergraduate programmes and at Cranfield University for postgraduate operations management and performance measurement programmes and Dublin City University for postgraduate operations management programmes.
