The fall ‘Working Paper Series’ kicked off with NSU’s Graduate School of Computer and Information Sciences Assistant Professor James Parrish, Ph.D. He presented “Toward a Theory of Emergent Leadership for Collaborative Information Systems Development among Social Enterprises.”

Parrish’s October 4 presentation discussed how many social enterprises (SEs) are adopting collaborative strategies to overcome fragmentation and duplication in the social sector to effectively address the world’s social needs, such as hunger, poverty, healthcare and education.  With SEs increasingly utilizing Information Technology (IT) to support collaboration, Parrish explores the collective leadership emerging from the collaborative information systems design process itself as being relevant to SE contexts.

Before joining the faculty at NSU earlier this year, Parrish was an assistant professor at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock where he was actively involved in student instruction, course development and in the creation of partnerships between industry and academia. Parrish is an active researcher whose academic interests include knowledge management systems, social engineering, decision support systems and IT strategy. Prior to entering academia, he had over 10 years of experience working in the information systems field for public and private sector organizations as a web designer and programmer, systems analyst, IT manager and consultant.

The Working Paper Series is open to researchers with an interest in different aspects of computer and information sciences. For more information, please visit http://www.scis.nova.edu/workingpapers/.
