Skills, Knowledge and Organisational Performance

About us

The Centre on Skills, Knowledge and Organisational Performance (SKOPE)was founded in October 1998.  It examines the links between the acquisition and use of skills and knowledge, product market strategies and performance (measured in a variety of ways). Initially the Centre was based jointly at the universities of Oxford and Warwick. In 2006 the Warwick operation was moved to Cardiff University. The Centre has built on  strengths at all three institutions and attempted to extend them into areas that are of major theoretical and policy concern. SKOPE started its fourth five-year research programme in April 2014.  It is currently based at the Department of Education at University of Oxford.
