James M. Kerr is a management consultant and organizational behaviorist. He specializes in strategic planning, corporate transformation and project & program development. For more than 20 years, Jim has forged a different type of consulting practice – one that does its engagements “with” its clients, instead of “to” them.

A recognized thought leader, Jim continues to provide cutting edge solutions to his clients through a strong dedication to research and study. The Executive Checklist (Palgrave Macmillan, 2014) is Jim’s fourth business strategy book and is available in stores, now. It is a testament to his commitment to helping leaders improve the ways in which they guide and shape their organizations..

A graduate of Bentley University located in Waltham, Massachusetts, Jim earned an M.S. degree in Management Science from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute -- where he continues to teach graduate-level Strategic Planning courses in its Lally School of Management.
