My teaching activity falls into two main areas: i) information and knowledge management and ii) qualitative research methods, at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. In Information and knowledge management, I cover a variety of subjects, including organizational culture and organizational learning, communities of practice and boundary spanning practices, absorptive capacity, core competences and intellectual capital valuation. In research methods, my teaching is focused primarily on qualitative approaches, including Grounded Theory, discourse analysis and situational analysis. Most of my sessions are grounded in practical case studies and examples of known organizations, such as NASA, Xerox, Skandia and a variety of consultancies. I enjoy bringing a variety of approaches, media and resources to my sessions, which are predominantly interactive.
