Director - MSc International Management (2006-2010)
IM is one of the most successful MSc programmes run by SPRU and the University of Sussex. Through the staff in the Teaching Office, I oversee the day-to-day administration of the programme, in particular, the organisation of the teaching content of the programme, appointing examiners for assessed work and supervisors for dissertations, monitoring student progress and advising those students in academic difficulties. I have also managed to orient students towards the subject of the interfaces and linkages between business, management and marketing from the perspective of very low and low income countries' - an important area which tends to be poorly covered in other MSc Marketing and Management programmes. Moreover I have managed to ensure that the latest research on these subjects by my colleagues, myself and other academics (including green marketing and sustainable approaches to development) feeds directly into to my teaching of students in order to enliven and enrich the students' learning experience.

Allam research philosophy is central to both his teaching and broader academic goal of generating and sharing ideas and transmitting them within and across the student, policy, academic and business communities with whom he is engaged. He has published widely on how knowledge and technology transfer (TT) contribute to SD and competitiveness in the developing countries (DCs). He has produced more than 120 publications, including fourteen books, numerous articles on knowledge and technology transfer and management, sustainable development (SD), marketing and policy reports on sustainability and competitiveness. He serves on the Editorial Board of eight international journals in S&T, KM, Business, Entrepreneurship, Marketing, Management, Strategy and International Business, and reviewer for Oxford University Press, Emerald Publishing, Inderscience Publishers, Journal of World Business; Management Research News; Journal of Development Studies; Science, Technology & Human Values; International Journal of Technology Management; Management Decision; International Journal of Technology Transfer and Commercialisation; Research Policy; etc.
Allam main areas of research focus on: (a) globalisation and competitiveness. This cover topics relating to marketing; strategic management; entrepreneurship; and government macroeconomic policies and (b) the role of science and technology in achieving sustainable development (SD). This covers topics relating to marketing and commercialisation of technological products and innovation; knowledge and technology transfer and management; productivity gap analysis & modeling; SD; industry & sustainability; and achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
His work is distinctive within the wider academic community as it focuses on the poor (and some of the poorest) nations. This has led Allam into various collaborations with different distinguished scholars across the UK and the world and to various invitations to guest-edit journal special issues and to give key note speaches at international conferences.
Allam intellectual contribution is perhaps best illustrated by the following recent examples of published work.
“Sharing Knowledge Making a Difference: The Role of International Scientific Cooperation” World Association for Sustainable Development (WASD), UK (2011). This book aims to critically propose new ways to return to the basic principles of international scientific co-operation between the developed and developing countries (DCs) and support partnerships and sharing of knowledge as well as various common initiatives between developed countries organizations and DCs to achieve SD.
"The European Union as a Model of International Cooperation in Science, Technology and Sustainable Development", The British Journal of Politics & International Relations, 9(4), 2007: 654-669. In this article, co-authored with Doctor Josephine Stein, we assess European Union (EU) research policy as a stable, long-term form of organising international science and technology co-operation, and evaluate the prospects for transposing this model to co-operation with non-European developing countries (DCs) in the context of sustainable development. The article shows that the EU often neglects the capabilities for change within DCs. The European approach combines scientific objectives with common political, social, economic and environmental aims through a form of partnership based on dynamism, collective decision-making and the distribution of research responsibility. It is argued that the prevailing character of co-operation between Europe and DCs, which stresses the transfer of resources, does not adequately recognise the knowledge, capacity for innovation and valuable socio-cultural assets of partners within the developing world which will be essential to build the partnerships needed to sustain progress in this area.
"Knowledge Management and Sustainable Development in the 21st Century" Greenleaf Publishing, UK (2007). This edited collection was developed to provide an overview of sustainable development, to discuss why it is important and to provoke forward thinking on the development of a more coherent approach to solving global problems related to sustainability through science and technology. In doing so, a holistic approach is used to critically examine the interrelationship between the natural, governmental, economic and social dimensions and how science and technology can contribute to solutions. The book reveals how the different dimensions of knowledge and technology management in the era of information revolution relates to sustainable development. It shows that the technological gulf between developed and developing countries (DCs) is likely to widen further with the rapid expansion of the internet and the speedy transition to digitalisation in the West. The impacts on DCs may include an increase in the so-called brain drain and growing dependence on foreign aid of a different kind - knowledge aid. Adopting a holistic approach, this book critically examines the interrelationship between these different issues in order to propose policy solutions and reach a consensus on a sustainable future, taking into account a variety of international, institutional and intellectual perspectives. It uses case and country studies in technological innovation so that lessons in effective management of ICTs can be learned from successful initiatives, ideas and innovations.
“Managing Knowledge and Technology for Sustainable Development in Africa” International Journal of Technology Management (IJTM), 45(1/2), 1-225, Inderscience, UK (2009). This special issue covers a wide range of African dimensions and focus and countries specific cases. The objectives are to provide an overview of the important role of knowledge and technology management in achieving SD in Africa. This special issue represents the outcome of many comprehensive research programmes undertaken in different countries in Africa and other parts of the world during the last two years and written by more than twenty international experts in the field.
"Science, Technology and Sustainability in the Middle East and North Africa" Inderscience, UK (2007). The main objective of this book is to critically examine the complex and multi-dimensional relationship between science, technology and the environment in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). Similar to the other book, a holistic approach is used to provide an in-depth analysis and state of the art overview of the efforts made by the different countries in the MENA region to tackle these challenges of sustainability and sustainable development.
"Business Excellence and Competitiveness in the Middle East and North Africa". Inderscience Publishers, UK (2008). This edited collection represents a decade of work of many comprehensive research programmes undertaken in different countries in the MENA region and other parts of the world by highly-qualified contributing authors from around the world. The book is developed to outline key factors that are influencing and influenced by the business environment in the MENA region and that are essential for achieving business excellence and competitiveness in the region. In doing so, a holistic approach is used to analyse and assess the performance of the different countries in the region against each other and the rest of the world using different international indicators and measurements. This impressive volume includes excellent case studies that provide a detailed assessment of the potential and limitations of the business environment in different countries in the MENA region.
"The 13 Key Performance Indicators for Highly Effective Teams". Greenleaf Publishing, UK (2008). This book, co-authored with colleagues from SIA Group, outlines the challenges faced by both team leaders and team members in 21st-century workplaces. It proposes 13 key performance or ‘team health' indicators for highly effective teams based on research data collected from a large range of industry sectors, team sizes and organisations in the UK. It contributes to the understanding of the nature and functioning of team cohesiveness by describing teamwork as a multi-component variable and identifying the factors that impact on teams and the implications of teamwork for organisations. The book introduces a Team Performance Diagnostic (TPD) tool which enables organisations to gain an accurate and detailed insight into the real-time performance of their teams, helps team managers to understand the underlying ‘people' issues within the team and how to reach higher levels of team performance quickly. The TPD has been widely used in major multinationals and the UK public sector to pinpoint hard-to-find opportunities to achieve rapid improvements. The research suggests that the use of TPD contributes to more free-flowing feedback both within the team and in the organisation as a whole, and that successful teams are indicative of a healthy organisational culture.
“The Impact of the Global Financial Crisis on the Environment, Energy & Sustainable Development” World Association for Sustainable Development (WASD), UK (2009). This book explores global viewpoints and the latest thinking about the ways in which the recent global financial crisis has affected countries in achieving SD particularly in developing countries with an in-depth focus on deteriorating environmental conditions, energy, obesity and climate change. The book covers issues such as Knowledge Management; Education; Information and Communication Technologies; etc."
"Marketing of Halal Meat in the United Kingdom: Supermarkets Vs. Local Shops", British Food Journal, 100(7), 2008: 655-670. In this article I explore a number of marketing issues, such as consumer buyer behaviour, consumer psychology, distribution channels, etc., in relation to buying Halal Meat (HM) from local shops versus supermarkets in the UK. In doing so I analysed a consumer survey (300 participants) and observation of three local halal shops and a Morrisons supermarkets in London, Brighton and Edinburgh.The article shows that the majority of UK Muslims do not trust big supermarkets when buying HM and instead Muslims only trust a Muslim selling halal products in their local shops. This article reveals that the majority of UK Muslims are at odds with most UK shoppers and increasingly prefer to shop at small shops, rather than big supermarkets. The article helps to emphasise the major issues that frame the current state of marketing HM in the UK; contribute to a better understanding of such an important customer sector; and raise the necessary commitment to restructuring HM business activities in the UK and Europe.
"Food Security in Sudan: Policies and Strategies". United Nations World Food Programme (UNWFP) (2008). This book, co-authored with colleagues from Sudan, was developed to support the Government of Sudan in strengthening its capacity to deal more effectively with recurring problems of emergencies and disasters. The book critically reviews the current food security strategy and nutritional and agricultural policies and prepares specific recommendations for consideration by the government of Sudan. Adopting the 1996 World Food Summit definition of food security, the work reveals that three forms of food insecurity occur at a household level in Sudan: chronic food insecurity caused by long-term unfavourable agro-climatic conditions of drought and desertification; transient food insecurity due to recurrent drought and conflict in the south and lately in Darfur; and creeping food insecurity resulting from gradually deteriorating economic conditions of some segments of the population, namely rural-urban migrants, limited income government employees and pensioners. The research outlines the main causal factors behind the low agricultural productivity of land and high costs of production in the Sudan: absence of strategic orientation to achieve agricultural development; lack of improved technological packages due to low investment in research and technology transfer; lack of credit; poor infrastructure; poor access to marketing services; and uncertain land use rights. The research also outlines the inadequate level of coordination between the different national institutions, UN agencies and NGOs which are actively involved in food security and provides recommendations for capacity building at the federal and state levels in food security policy planning, monitoring and evaluation.
Teaching (both undergraduates and postgraduate students) has been a central part of my development as an academic. Teaching undergraduates has been gratifying not only in my efforts to introduce students to a world of critical inquiry, but also in the way in which addressing my students' difficulties with analytical writing and thinking has revitalized and refined my own research and writing. On the other hand, teaching graduate students pedagogical and professional skills has had much of the same sort of reflective benefit: I am now more cognisant of my own teaching skills and the pedagogical tenets behind those skills.
As a result of my commitment to students, I have always received highly rated evaluations in both undergraduate and postgraduate courses. In group and individual discussion, many of my students gave positive notice to things that are central to my philosophy of teaching. In general, student evaluations and written comments of my courses have been positive and encouraging.
I have been responsible for the design and teaching (restructured, developed & acting as course convenor) of several courses UG and PG:
Research Methods and Dissertation (MSc) - 863N1
Fundamentals of Global Management (MSc) - 860N1
Global Marketing Management (MSc) - 870N1
Managing Technology in a Global Economy (MSc) - 862N1
Strategy (Level 3) - N1021
Marketing (Level 2) - N1057
Business and Management Case Studies (Level 2) - N1018
Business and Management Case Studies (Level 1)
Communication Skills for Management (Level 1) - N1036
I have also been involved in supervising research students, reviewing proposals submitted within my area of expertise and attracting and marketing our research degrees to many potential candidates in different countries. I have continuously provided academic guidance to post-graduate students and trained managers and policy makers (various countries) in fields of marketing; international business and management; strategy; management; entrepreneurship; economics; ICTs; science and technology policy; sustainable development, etc. Recent examples of successful research students include:
