Profileimage by Russell Swanborough Human Intelligence Expert from Johannesburg
Russell Swanborough is acknowledged as an international expert on the subject of information management. He is a founder of the Science of Informational Management (ScIAM). He has worked at an executive level in management consulting since 1988. His speciality is the management of intelligence (incoming information), knowledge (get-at-able information) and strategy (outgoing influences). He specialises in improving corporate performance and R.O.I. based on enhanced internal and external informationals, with particular focus on strategy, knowledge and intelligence management.
Professional experience includes IBM (10 years), other I/T companies (4 years), telecommunications companies (3 years) and management consultancies (20+ years). During this time he has worked as a Senior Systems Engineer at both IBM and as a co-founder of a major IT company and as a director of international management consultancies. His identification of informational literacy - rather than technological literacy - as the true solution to effective corporate performance led him away from I/T and more into the study of information. His uniquely developed approach to this subject has been successfully delivered and proven through various organisations internationally. It provides the world’s first ‘know-charts’, these are information management tools that are designed to integrate with traditional ‘flow charts’ and other flow-based tools to provide a complete information picture and to strengthen strategy formulation.
Russell’s career has included extensive experience in assisting companies with such issues as effective strategies, business intelligence, knowledge management and process optimisation. He has managed many business process re-engineering initiatives in countries around the world and he has consulted in successful information application in clients internationally and across a wide range of industries. He is an accomplished lecturer and presenter and is often invited to talk at major conferences
Industries in which Russell has worked include Transport, Petrochemical, Banking, Mining, Refining, Retail, Government, Defense and many other sectors. Besides his professional career, Russell lectures at graduate, post-graduate and business-school levels at academic institutions and other organisations. He is committed to uplifting those who wish to gain essential experience.
