Biography                                               

Anne Kohnke is an Assistant Professor of IT and teaches courses in both the Information Technology and Organization Development/Change Management disciplines at the bachelor, master, and doctorate levels. Anne started at Lawrence Technological University (LTU) as an Adjunct Professor in 2002 and joined the faculty full-time in 2011.

Prior to joining LTU, Dr. Kohnke worked in industry for 25 years where she focused in information technology and management. Her IT career started in the mid-1980’s on a help desk, and over the years Anne developed technical proficiency as a database administrator, network administrator, and technical business analyst. After a decade, Anne was promoted to management and worked as a project manager, IT Director, and Vice President of IT and Chief Information Security Officer.

Dr. Kohnke’s technical experience and organization development background aided her in building collaborative, high performance teams to work on complex medium to large-scale technical projects. Anne has managed multi-million dollar IT budgets in fast paced entrepreneurial environments and has extensive experience in developing business processes to provide structure and healthy organizational cultures. She has also served and guided senior leadership in creating and executing strategic management plans.

Anne’s research interests focus on the intersection of technology and human interaction to include (1) cybersecurity—as barriers to entry are dropping and security threats are increasing, data sharing among the private and public sectors is critical. How do we create the partnerships that bring industry, government, and academia to work together and share threat data, knowledge, and policies? How do we best organize to do this?, (2) virtual teams and e-collaboration—how do organizations effectively manage virtual teams and what are the best practices for virtual e-collaboration?, (3) using business intelligence and data analytics to make effective decisions—what can our data tell us about student persistence and completion to inform our decision making?, and (4) ethical leadership using appreciative inquiry what are the practices of appreciative leaders and how do leaders participate in developing ethical organizations?
