Hello and welcome to my academic blog. My name is Eugene and I’m doing a post graduate dissertation on organizational communications, studying the works of Edgar Schein, emeritus professor of management at the MIT Sloan’s School of Management.
My thesis topic is “Organizational Culture and Communications in the works of Edgar Schein: Application to non-profits”
My hope is that using the internet as my notepad will have a two-fold effect: get me to keep working hard and keep writing, as well as contribute to a growing body of knowledge, if someone else might find my findings and thoughts useful.
The sub-theme of my dissertation is how to get non-profits transform their identity into public discourse. There are some who equate “identity” to “culture” (though not exactly accurate) and thus one can re-write this to how to get non-profits transform their culture into public discourse.
I will like to connect with scholars in similar fields with a view to learning from them. I will also be grateful for comments, suggestions and corrections in order to refine my thoughts as my research progresses.
I am doing my dissertation at the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross, Rome. My principal thesis director is a professor at this university (name withheld), while my secondary director is a professor at the University of Navarra, Spain.
