Thursday, December 15, 2011, 4:00 - 6:00 p.m., Microsoft, 201 Jones Rd., Sixth Floor, Waltham, MA 02451. Directions.

SPEAKER: Wei Zhang, Associate Professor, College of Management, Univ. of Mass, Boston

TOPIC: We have invited Dr. Wei Zhang back to the Boston KM Forum to be interviewed on his current research and the challenges of teaching KM to management students in higher education. In the summer of 2010, Dr. Zhang shared his experiences while on sabbatical in China where he found wide and interesting disparity in knowledge sharing behaviors when comparing two corporations’ operations. The presentation Knowledge Management in China: A Tale of Two Companies, stimulated great discussion and intense interest and we want to hear more about his research and thoughts on knowledge sharing behaviors. We will interview him to learn more about those experiences and new insights on the topic.

BIOGRAPHY: Wei Zhang earned his doctorate in management information systems from Boston University. His research interests include knowledge management, cultural issues in Information Systems, and Information Systems Education. Dr. Zhang has published in journals such as Journal of Association for Information Systems, Social Work, Communications of the Association for Information Systems, Behavior and Information Technology, and Journal of Information Systems Education. Dr. Zhang earned his ME at Renmin University of China and BE in computer science at University of Science and Technology of China.
