Elm House

My name is Andrew Grantham. I work at the University of Brighton in the UK. This site is for anyone interested in my work, leisure and politics.

For example, my work profile can be found at http://centrim.mis.brighton.ac.uk/people/a-z/ag155

I am a lecturer and researcher. I am currently teaching strategy in the School of Business and Law at the University of Brighton. My publication list can be found here

My desk can be found in Elm House, floor 5.

To get to Elm House, take the 25 bus from Chruchill Square. Alternatively take the train from Brighton Station to Moulsecoomb on the Coastway East service in the direction of Seaford/Newhaven or Eastbourne. Get off at Moulsecoomb Station (second stop), cross the footbridge and walk straight to Lewes Road. Turn right and walk 500m or so past the Cockroft and Watts Builidngs. Elm House is on the right (see picture above).

If you are walking from Brighton station, leave the station and turn right and then double back on yourself and go under the railway concourse. Continue down Trafalagar Street until you reach London Road. Ahead is St Peter’s Church, go to the other side of the church and turn left up Lewes Road. Go past Sainsbury’s, the bus garage. Mithras House is opposite B&Q.

If walking from the town centre, either go to the railway station and follow the directions above. Alternatively, walk along North Street (Boots, TK Maxx are on this street) towards the Pavilion. Cross the road keeping the  fountain on your left. When you have the Sainsbury’s Local store in front of you, go left and walk straight. This becomes Lewes Road. Again, follow the instructions above.

The business model utilises both external and internal ideas to create value, while defining internal mechanisms to claim some portion of that value.
