Bain & Company and My Two Books

Two of my books get listed in Bain & Company Management Tool Survey. According to Bain & Company, “Bain & Company launched a multiyear research project in 1993 to gather facts about the use and performance of management tools. Our objective was to help inform managers about the tools available to them and provide them with:
An understanding of how their current application of these tools and subsequent results compare with those of other organizations across industries and around the globe;
The information they need to identify, select, implement and integrate the right tools to improve their company's performance.” (see Bain & Company). The survey was conducted by Darrell Rigby.

The books listed are:

The Outsourcing Handbook: How to Implement a Successful Outsourcing Process (Kogan Page, 2006) (under Outsourcing Tools) [see Link]

Engaged Knowledge Management: Engagement with New Realities (Palgrave Macmillan, 2005) (under Knowledge Management) [see Link]

Chiang Mai University

I recently met with a delegation of scholars from Chiang Mai University (Thailand). Senior scholars from Chiang Mai University (, along with a representative from Microsoft (Thailand), visited us at the Information School, University of Washington, to learn about our MSIM (Masters of Science in Information Management) program and I3M (the Institute for Innovation in Information Management). We explored collaborative opportunities, and I welcomed the opportunity to co-create solutions (and problems) with researchers and students from Chiang Mai University.
