My research and creative work has focused upon management and leadership to include ethical standards as well as project management. For instance, my dissertation examined cultural orientation and its influence upon academic misconduct in an AACSB accredited Business School. My creative and research interests also include project management curriculum. I have written two project management textbooks which are currently provided at no cost to students in the project management courses I teach at KU.
