John Hamilton Howard

Adjunct Professor, UTS Business School, University of Technology Sydney

I am a highly experienced management consultant, public policy analyst, and economist with a track record of achievement in the areas of:
. Governance.
. Public policy analysis, research, and advice.
. Management strategy, strategic planning, organisation design.
. Government program review and evaluation.
. Research commercialisation and university engagement with industry.
. Regional development and regional innovation systems.
My professional knowledge, skills and experience in the fields of management consultancy and pubic policy analysis provides a unique combination of capability that has been applied in an extensive portfolio of research projects and commissions for government, business, universities and the non-government (NGO) sector over a 25 year period.
I have provided advice to Ministers, Ministerial staff, CEOs and senior management teams on policy, strategy, organisation structure, program performance improvement, communication, and innovation. Advice is built around detailed situation analysis, stakeholder consultation, literature review, case profiles, and evidence based material on contemporary management practice. It is provided in a context of practicality, feasibility, and cost of implementation.
I have a strong interest in digital transformation in organisations and its potential for productivity improvement and for product, process and business model innovation - as well as on employment, training and skill requirements. I have prepared several reports for government and industry in these areas. Most are publicly available.
I have a PhD from The University of Sydney (Innovation), a Master of Arts from the University of Canberra (Public Policy), and a degree in Economics (Honours) from the University of Tasmania.
