Revelation of Tesco accounting error may have done new board a favour

Description
There is a long history of companies misstating their financial position and performance, and on Monday Tesco plc became the latest with its announcement that it had overstated its half-year profit forecast by £250 million. This revelation, arising from information provided by an internal whistle-blower, resulted in an 11 per cent reduction in the supermarket giant's share price, putting the share value at an 11-year low. How can an error this large have occurred?

Research project: Translation across borders: exploring the use, relevance and impact of academic research in the policy process (Jan 2014 - Mar 2015)

Description
This project seeks to explore and suggest ways to address the frustrations which attempts to translate research into policy can bring.
