Comoxie is member of the Oxford Praxis Forum; a collaborative forum for experienced researchers and practitioners. The members explore how we can work together to develop fresh practical thinking about more effective ways of tackling the inherent complexity of real world problems.

“The Oxford Praxis Forum is dedicated to all those researchers who have wished that practitioners and policy makers would take more notice of their work, and all those practitioners and policy makers who have wondered when researchers would produce something that was worth taking notice of.”

Majken is doing a Professional Doctorate in Management at the Hertfordshire Business School south of London. This programme is designed for leaders, managers, internal and external consultants in organisations who want to articulate what is being ignored in the dominant theoretical approaches to organisational life.
