Professor Roger Maull

Professor of Management Systems, Academic Director INDEX

+44 (0) 7968 799381

INDEX, London

Roger Maull is Professor of Management Systems at the University of Exeter’s Business School and Academic Director of the Initiative for the Digital Economy at Exeter (INDEX), which is based on London’s South Bank.

Roger’s initial research interest focused on Operations Management, specifically in the services sector and he has continued to publish widely on that topic (see below for list of publication). Since 2009 his research has moved to focus on the impact of the Digital Economy on individuals, organisations and more generally on society. He argues that we are living through a revolution driven by digital devices that can help us understand more about people (eg biometrics, see DIGIT grant) and things (eg Internet of Food Things project). These new sources of data are changing how individuals live and work; how organizations operate; how businesses create value; how competition unfolds; how industries are structured and how innovation happens. To address these challenges, he is (as of April 2021) an investigator on eight UKRI projects (see research projects for more details).

Research projects

Active UKRI awards (more details of the ESPRC grants are on https://gow.epsrc.ukri.org/NGBOViewPerson.aspx?PersonId=10318).

  1. DIGIT EP/T022566/1 is a five year next stage Digital Economy research centre with £12.6m funding from three sources, EPSRC, industry and three partner universities. The focus of DIGIT is digital transformation in Large Established Organisations (LEOs).
  2. DEAS EP/R044937/1 is a Digital Economy (DE) Network+ which is creating a community of researchers to research the impact of how digital technology is changing business models in three industry sectors, manufacturing, transport and insurance.
  3. DROPS (EP/R033560/1) is using the Hub-of-All-Things (HAT) personal data platform to consider questions around personalising and scaling production based on individual user requirements.
  4. UKMSN+ (EP/S036091/1) is a Manufacturing the Future Network+ developing a network of manufacturing companies and researchers interested in generating new economic value through the continuous exchange of resources (materials and energy).
  5. FOOD EP/R045127/1 is a DE Network+ focusing on IoT devices within the food supply chain and how IoT, blockchain and other digital technologies impact on food safety and firm productivity.
  6. TECHNGI ES/S010416/1 is investigating the application of AI in the insurance industry including emerging markets such as insurance for cyber-security.
  7. Digital Sandwich is a Manufacturing Made Smarter Innovate UK project applying digital technologies in the food supply chain.
  8. Digital Servitization is a Manufacturing Made Smarter Innovate UK project applying digital technologies to product servitization in the heating and energy sectors.

These projects can be grouped into three themes:

  • Digital Transformation. The focus of DIGIT is on four aspects of digital transformation in large companies: the digital technologies that are changing what is technically possible; the business models being impacted by these technologies; the organisational change required and finally the impact on individual well-being. My specific focus is on business models and their implications for organisational change. Digit will also focus on the use of personal data to bring about new product opportunities (see DROPS) including professional services (TECHNGI).
  • Sustainability Digitally Enhanced Advanced Services (DEAS, UKMSN+). Rather than focus on the product or service that is delivered DEAS focuses on how the product or service is used. This is a major change in how firms generate revenue and is being enabled by transformative digital technologies that allows for example, payment per use or availability or outcome. The impact of these changes is in firm productivity and reduced product usage. This research builds on Roger’s extensive publication profile in outcomes and product service systems. Roger is also on the advisory board of the national circular economy centre which is led by Fiona Charnley and Peter Hopkinson at the University of Exeter.
  • Research on food use and waste throughout the supply chain (FOOD). This links back to previous research in supply chains in the service industry (Maull, Geraldi and Johnston) and IoT and supply chains (Parry, Brax, Maull and Ng). It also has strong links to our ongoing research with Fareshare (http://www.fareshare.org.uk/) who distribute food to over 250,000 people a week. This research was the subject of a recent paper in the Journal of Service Research, (http://epubs.surrey.ac.uk/841894/). Food usage and the application of digital technologies throughout the food supply chain open opportunities to collect large end to end datasets that we can analyse for supply chain optimisation.

 

In addition, I have a long-standing interest in personal data. Using the Hub-of-all things (HAT) platform to consider questions emerging from the ‘personalisation paradox’ ie the consumer wants more personalised products and services while simultaneously being increasingly concerned about their online security and uses of their data. The HAT is a personal data repository that ensures that 'my data belongs to me'. It collects data from a range of IoT devices, social media, wearables and sensors onto a platform that can subsequently be used for analysis. Using the HAT we can develop experimental designs that address questions around what types and combinations of data on different user groups prepared to release for different incentives.
