[kevin_1.jpg] Dr. Kevin C. Desouza is on the faculty of the Information School at the University of Washington. He is a Director, and founding faculty member of the Institute for Innovation in Information Management (I3M) and the Institute for National Security Education and Research, both housed at the University of Washington. His most recent book is Managing Knowledge Security (Kogan Page, 2007). In addition, he has published over 100 articles in practitioner and academic journals, and frequently keynotes at international academic conferences and industry conventions. In the last year only he held visiting positions at London School of Economics, UK, and at University of Witwatersrand in South Africa. Dr. Desouza has advised major international corporations and government organizations worldwide on strategic management issues ranging from knowledge management, to competitive intelligence, and crisis management. He is a fellow at Royal Society of Arts…. And…. he only got his doctorate in 2006 (no, he wasn’t that slow. He is so young!)

  1. I want to know about how we focuses on his work and still has time for all his travel.

  2. Kevin, care to share a little something about managing relations with industry groups, while pursuing top-quality academic contributions? Do you re-shape your academic presentations for industry, or is that a separate, but related, set of topics/presentations?

    One often hears of cross-fertilization between industry and academic practice, if that happens for you perhaps you could share a specific story?


  3. Thanks for choosing someone that has completed their PhD in the last few years. We have much to from our new assistant professors. Keenly waiting to read this interview. Thank you.

  4. Cheers… — thank you for your inputs, dear site readers… we will be posting the interview veray soon. It will be an exciting one — and as you said, Anon, we can learn a lot from “fresh forces” indeed. Check back in a day or two..
