Who Am I?

Jo-Louise Huq (Ph.D., MBA)

I am a pracademic-a practitioner of collaboration, change, and innovation who also conducts and publishes research on collaboration, change, and innovation. This is my personal blog, and I use it to communicate about my and other’s research, publications, and ideas related to change, innovation, and collaboration.

This blog is linked to CCIG: Collaborative Change and Innovation Group (ccigsolutions.com) an organization that I co-founded with Kathryn York (MBA, B.Comm). Through CCIG, Kathryn and I support sectors, organizations, and individuals who want to encourage and support change, innovation, and collaboration to better address pressing social and organizational challenges.

In addition to my work with CCIG, I am an Assistant Adjunct Professor at the Haskayne School of Business, University of Calgary. Through this association, I remain actively involved in research and adult education.

I have presented to and facilitated workshops for non-profit and corporate audiences in Canada and abroad. Before earning my MBA (Public Administration) and Ph.D. (Strategic Management and Organization) from the Alberta School of Business, University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada, I worked as a consultant in an international architectural and engineering firm and as a senior planner and clinical coordinator in large health authority.

My research on innovation and change in established organizations and environments has been published in academic and professional journals including Organization Studies, Leadership, Business & Society, Academy of Management Proceedings, BMJ Quality & Safety, and the Journal of Change Management.
