Dr Timothy Bednall


I am an industrial-organisational psychologist and a Senior Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in the Department of Management and Marketing at Swinburne Business School.

My broad area of research is employee learning and innovative behaviour. I research how employee, team, and organisational factors influence participation in these behaviours. I also have a strong interest and expertise in statistics, analytics and machine learning.

I am available for consulting in the areas of HR / people / talent analytics, research services, assessment of employees, teams and organisations, and coaching for interpersonal effectiveness and leadership development.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_column_text]
