knowledge management

Expert has been adjunct professor in the area of organizational development and change in three widely-respected graduate business schools. His work with clients in this area has focused on systems thinking and the design and management of total organization change processes and managing resistance to change efforts. Globalization, intensified competition and increasing customer demands have created the need for large scale change efforts in many organizations in order to keep their competitive edge and their place in the market. Organizations face the challenge of maintaining congruence among organizational functions, technology, strategy and organizational culture and processes. Expert's work in this area has involved helping organizations and individuals to: better problem-solve, seek out and capture opportunities, and increase their abilities to learn from their own processes and from the marketplace.

organizational development

Offshoring and increasing demands for a global presence have led many of the companies with which Expert has consulted to consider how they might best apply motivational approaches to create a true people-centered workplace. He has helped numerous organizations in a wide variety of industries re-design work practices to help organizations increase employee responsibility and decision-making, and increase perceived control among employees. Careful application of well-researched motivational approaches have led Expert's clients to increased productivity and individual initiative and decreased absenteeism, turnover, and counter-productive behavior. In addition, an increasing emphasis on project-based work and global and remote teaming has created special motivational challenges in many organizations. Expert's broad-based experience in individual and system dynamics has proved helpful to organizations struggling with these special issues.
