Dr Paul James

Paul is a doctoral candidate (DBA) at Southern Cross University, Australia. His research topic is the nexus between Strategic Management and Knowledge Management, focusing on the lifecycle of knowledge assets. Coming from an engineering background, Paul has spent the last fifteen years developing and implementing information systems required to support engineering operations in the electricity industry. Out of this work came an interest in knowledge management, largely due to the suboptimal results achieved by most information systems, and the loss of knowledge in the electricity industry through downsizing.
