Albert Angehrn’s activities concentrate on the impact of information and communication technologies and networks on learning, change, and collaboration processes within and across organisations, and on the design of innovative solutions to management learning, including the design of advanced simulations, intelligent agents, and virtual learning spaces.
Albert is a Professor of Information Technology at INSEAD since 1989. His research work received various international awards. His publications appear in academic journals, such as Journal of Management Information Systems, European Management Journal, Information Systems Management, European Journal of Operations Research and articles in The Financial Times and The Wall Street Journal. He has also contributed to chapters of several books.
He founded INSEAD’s Centre for Advanced Learning Technologies (CALT) and has designed a variety of multimedia and internet-based management learning and development tools, including the EIS Simulation, a change, IT innovation and people management challenge, which is adopted by schools such as Stanford, MIT, Duke and Columbia University, the LingHe Simulation, which allows managers to experience the challenge of interacting and driving change within a Chinese organisation, or the recent Boost AI, which addresses the diffusion and adoption of Artificial Intelligence techniques in organizations.
He directed INSEAD’s Executive Education programmes, Competing in the Information Age and Leadership in the Knowledge Society (LinKS). He taught MBA courses on Organisational Computing and CyberEntrepreneurship, and held numerous workshops on Leadership in the information Age for The European Round Table of Industrialists (ERT). He is currently active in presenting his latest research via INSEAD Online.
Albert holds regular sessions at CEDEP, in particular on collaboration, using his renowned simulations.
