Author Biography - Henry Linger

Dr Henry Linger is Deputy Director of the Centre for Organisational and Social Informatics (COSI) and the Knowledge Management Research Program (KMRP) in the Faculty of Information Technology at Monash University. He is also a Research Associate at the Defence Science and Technology Organisation (DSTO), contributing to research in social learning and organisational transformation. Henry has a Bachelor of Engineering degree and a PhD in Knowledge Management. He conducts research in the area of knowledge work, knowledge management, organisational learning and the design of ICT systems to support such activity. His research involves national and international collaborations and has been conducted across a broad range of domains including defence, meteorology, epidemiology, immunology and clinical and management aspects of healthcare. His current research focuses on knowledge-based practices managing emergent issues in complex projects; the development of dynamic capabilities for adaptive organisations; and the application of knowledge management to climate change policy development and implementation. Dr Jill Owen is a key player in the teaching and research of Project Management within the School of Business at University of New South Wales, Canberra Campus. Her research focuses on the project as a vehicle for organising work and on the role of knowledge based practices and informal processes in influencing how an organisation operates. This complements the contemporary shift of emphasis from the traditional focus on the technical processes of projects to the idea of projects as primarily social constructs that can be considered as social systems. Jill has published in refereed journals and conferences at both the national and international level.
