I am a Senior Lecturer in Information and Knowledge Management and I also hold a Visiting Professor position at the Business School of Zagreb University. Prior to joining Strathclyde Business School, I worked as a lecturer in Hungarian universities and I have also worked as an independent software development consultant. I have gained 4 master degrees from Hungarian universities, including an MBA, and then a PhD from Strathclyde.
In my teaching the emphasis is on the knowledge worker at the centre of the learning organisation. As the Director of the Management Development Programme (MDP) 2010-2013, I have conducted a full redesign of this three-year-long undergraduate course and lead the initial stage of the implementation. Recently I have developed and ran a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) titled ‘Understanding modern Business and Organisations’, which is, I believe the first business school MOOC delivered in the UK.
My research is focused on two interrelated areas: the first covers modelling personal knowledge, learning and cognition in organizational context; the second covers knowledge-based expert systems, in particular the Doctus KBS. Having developed a number of conceptual models of personal knowledge, my most recent research on creativity and intuition has seen me interview 20 world-renowned experts, including 17 Nobel Laureates. My research has been published in Management Learning, International Journal of Management Reviews, Knowledge Management Research and Practice, Creativity and Innovation Management, amongst others. I serve on the International Editorial Board of Management Learning.
