Senior Lecturer

Dr Jonathan Klein is Senior Lecturer within Southampton Business School at the University of Southampton.

My interests have broadened over the years from management science and operational research (particularly, though by no means exclusively, the "softer" end) to include information systems and knowledge management. I have undertaken externally funded research and consultancy in a variety of areas, including risk management and health care management. 

I hold a BSc in Physics with Mathematics (University of Sussex, 1975), an MSc in the Physics of Ion Implantation and Radiation Effects in Materials (University of Sussex, 1977), and a PhD in Operational Research (Royal Holloway College, University of London, 1982).

Research interests

  • Communities of practice, focusing on their internal structures and behaviours, and the contribution such communities make to organisational knowledge management.
  • Health care management, focusing on stakeholder identification and participation in health care modelling.
  • Knowledge management, sharing and transfer within and between communities of professionals and other groups (for example, university teachers and folk musicians).
  • Storytelling as a mechanism for sharing knowledge within organisations.
  • Management science and operational research practice (in particular, the use of "soft" approaches and narrative engineering).
  • The theory and practice of risk management.
  • Multiple-criteria decision analysis.
  • Operational and research gaming.
