Research

Psychologica is a learning organization. We adopt best practices and actively contribute to the generation of new knowledge.

Dr Phil Bardzil has been involved in a number of high level research projects over the years, in the areas of: occupational psychology, service quality, staff competence, personality, aging in the workplace, and leadership style.

Resulting from £500,000 of research investment and subsequent validation through extensive peer review, this has contributed towards one of the most well researched and validated approaches to integrated individual and organizational development available anywhere. Developed by Dr Phil Bardzil, at Manchester Business School, the Psychologica Model™ emerged from analysis of customers’ perceptions of service quality and is designed to enhance the organizational and leadership factors which impact on service climate, customer retention and bottom line profit.
