Tim is a thought leader and organizational catalyst in knowledge and intelligence strategy and economics. His articles, books, and Value of Knowledge blogaddress a range of opportunities for — and threats to — intellectual capital, brands, and other intangible enterprise assets.
“Knowledge professionals are too often the unsung heroes of their organizations. Chronically under-resourced and overstretched, their value to the enterprise is far greater than generally acknowledged by senior organizational leadership. I strive to correct that.“
A Yale-trained research psychologist-turned-MBA, Tim has worked in data analytics, new business design and development, market research, competitive intelligence, and intellectual property security. He is the developer of the Knowledge Value Chain®, a framework for increasing the ROI and value of enterprise knowledge and intelligence.
Prior to founding TKA in 1996, Tim held client-facing and management responsibilities at KPMG, Opinion Research Corporation, and PwC. Though much of his work has been with large enterprises, he has also served on the boards of start-ups in health care and technology. Prior to entering business, he worked extensively with nonprofits and government agencies supporting children’s health and development.
Tim is a senior fellow of The Conference Board (TCB), a founding member and former chair of the Council of Competitive Intelligence Fellows (CCIF), and a fellow of the Strategic and Competitive Intelligence Professionals (SCIP). He has taught at the graduate level at Long Island University (competitive intelligence) and Columbia University (information and knowledge strategy).
