Zuhur Balayah is a PhD candidate within the Faculty of Management (in the area of Organisational Behaviour) at Bayes Business School (formally CASS). Her PhD sits within the Centre for Healthcare Innovation Research (a joint venture between Bayes Business School and the School of Health Sciences) and NIHR ARC North Thames Innovation and Implementation Science Theme.
Zuhur's PhD focuses on ways in which the speed and effectiveness of the implementation of innovations in NHS organizations may be enhanced by learning from the experience of other sites. More specifically, her research explores the value of various aspects of mutual learning from other implementation sites for implementing organisations including: the relative value of transferring tacit know-how versus explicit knowledge in the implementation process; the implications of innovation adaptations; and the usefulness of different means of capturing, codifying, and exchanging knowledge.
Prior to beginning her PhD, Zuhur held various research roles including at the Centre for Implementation Science at King’s College London. She holds a BSc in Pharmacology from UCL and an MSc in Public Health from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.
PhD supervisors: Prof. Amit Nigam and Dr. Charitini Stavropoulou.
