Dr Luke Houghton is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Business Strategy and Innovation and member of the Institute for Integrated and Intelligent Systems.
Luke is actively engaged in research in management problem solving with over 30 publications in this field. His research follows three key streams. The first stream looks at how framing and sensemaking influence problem solving in messy management environments. The second stream is the feral information systems project which looks at the social, technical and organisation impacts of work-arounds. The third stream involves a study of communities of practice and technology use as well as the practices of blended learning in higher education contexts. His main passion is thinking about how cognitive models (thinking patterns) effect the way we solve problems and make decisions.
