Tom Short<br />I am a professional management consultant, analyst, researcher and strategic problem solver. I have worked with blue chip clients in a variety of industries on four continents. I help clients identify and prioritize innovations that will best support strategic intent and profitability. These innovations can include new ways to leverage existing resources like infrastructure, technology and human capital, as well as looking to take advantage of emerging technology, business models, etc. <br />One of my specialties is knowledge management, which focuses particularly on human capital, including tacit knowledge, skill and expertise, and how these can be better leveraged by an enterprise to improve productivity and innovation. In my current position with a global professional services firm I am an internal knowledge services practitioner. My past roles include consulting positions with IBM, Gartner, Coopers & Lybrand and boutique firms.<br />Speaker Bios<br />
