After many years of racking my brain for a research topic, I finally found one I could engage with for 8 years of part-time study. Finding a university and supervisor was relatively straightforward and, as it was a research-only qualification, I could incorporate my study into my career as a management consultant working for a large global company. As my diary was dictated by my clients’ needs, I was used to 60+ hours working weeks, including working on the weekend and juggling competing priorities – so how hard could it be? I approached my study with the same planning processes I applied to work projects. I prepared my literature review over six months. I already had access to data that I could analyse for my confirmation (a university process to get approval to proceed with my doctorate research).
