Abstract Work Allocation Models (WAMs) have played a major role in academe by facilitating the distribution of the various activities and tasks that academics must do as a part of their job in an equitable and transparent way. WAMs have been used in universities in conjunction with other change management tools to assist in the increase of research output per se (i.e., quantity WAMs) and have been foreshadowed as a useful tool in the enhancement of research quality in the UK. In this paper, a quality oriented WAM is developed to assist in the enhancement of research quality. The quality WAM developed, incorporates successful aspects from the quantity WAM and then develops a new approach for its implementation in the quality environment.
