Interdisciplinary working within and between different professions is now commonplace, with the transferability of knowledge across situated contexts of implementation. Education at doctoral level can be one mechanism of ensuring that mid-career professionals are equipped with the skills needed to build the capacity and capability required to deal with crisis situations. Interdisciplinary professional doctoral pathways and their associated learning trajectories are now a recognised mechanism of operationalising translational research from the context of work-based praxis. The longstanding debates of how best to bridge the theory-practice nexus in the field of business remains a challenge, although the progressive development of professional doctorate programmes has seen a rise in the number of clinical and professional practice doctorates across Western educational providers. This theoretical chapter will provide an insight into the concept of translational research in the context of research-based practice/work-based praxis within organisations across the globe.
