Seeking Industry Professional as a Committee Member for my Dissertation

Greetings Everyone:

Thank you for taking the time to stop by my blog where I have started to detail some of the research that I will be conducting over the course of the next year. However, before I can continue in my research phase I am looking for my last committee member (Industry Professional). Please note the following:

This is approximately a one-year commitment, although this commitment can range from one to three years. Previous experience in this type of role is helpful, but not required; however, the industry professional I am seeking must have business experience in Technology Advancements (i.e. Customer Relationship Management (CRM), Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Inter-Organizational Systems (IOS), Advanced Planning Systems (APS), Cloud Systems, etc) or related field(s) such as Supply Chain Management (SCM). Expertise in systemic thinking, quantitative research, blogging, and/or academic writing is absolutely necessary. Interest in my content area (general now but to be refined later) are extremely helpful. Sense of humor, creativity, and ability to generate visionary ideas are necessary for this position. Member must be authoritative yet collaborative, patient yet assertive, and inspirational yet practical. Must be accessible in case of emergency (such as writer's block, flight of ideas, or delusions of grandeur), yet able to "back off" and provide "space" when necessary. Benefits are not guaranteed; however, potential benefit (in admiration, gratitude, and productivity) not to mention accolades in publications such as the International Journal of Strategic Information Technology, Journal of the Association of Information, Journal on Computing, Journal of Physical Distribution and Logistics, and the International Journal of Operations and Production Management can be expected.

The dissertation is only a part of the picture albeit a major feature. You or someone else’s decision to sit as a chair member on my committee can also be an opportunity to take your career or company in a new direction along with playing a major mentoring role. If this role does not fit you personally, perhaps you may also know someone within the industry that would like to take on this project. On the other hand, if this opportunity does excite you and you would like to move forward in this process you can contact me back directly via email or replying to this post to discuss this proposal further or ask any specific questions. In addition, if you do decide to embark on this journey with me, I will warmly welcome you aboard, and look forward to working with you over the next year+.
