Most recently I have been interested in observing and studying the phenomenon of organizational change, specifically as it relates to the implementation of new information systems. My doctoral research centered around the practice of personal reflection to extract tacit knowledge, and the sharing of that knowledge among team members.
I’ve been teaching LDR 220 – Organizational Behavior in the Organizational Leadership program since Sep 2007. I have also taught graduate students in class and online for Benedictine University since 2005.
I am an organizational change readiness consultant working for CherryRoad Technologies, a PeopleSoft implementation firm, which has been my professional home since 2008. My job is to prepare organizations for new PeopleSoft systems, upgrades, or select modules and functionality. I have also been charged to manage projects, both with clients and internally as I have been certified as a Project Management Professional (PMP) by the Project Management Institute.
I have presented before several professional organizations to include the Midwest and the Rocky Mountain Regional User Groups (RUGs), and at Collaborate, an annual systems industry conference.
I noodle around on the guitar; jazz, blues, and classic rock. I love cycling throughout the many serene country roads that blanket Central Illinois. And, I help my wife rescue Beagles.
