Throughout my career I have endeavored to document and share the work I have done so that it might form a clear
foundation for others to build upon. Most of my written work has been in the form of proprietary documents
and white papers owned by the companies for whom I worked.
Now that I have my own firm I am seeking to share my work more widely through our ROI Learning Services'
White Papers and our
Professional Guidelines Series.
Listed below are articles, reviews, and letters published in peer-reviewed professional journals and magazines.
These deal with subjects in management, creativity, education, and technology. [Please do not reproduce or
distribute these papers without first obtaining my written permission. Thank you.]
