Knowledge Ability Profile
For nearly 20 years Knowledge Ability has been helping clients be successful in the wired world, meeting ever-increasing demands for new strategies, processes, competencies and personal skills when people work together apart rather than together.
The company's services are the product of over 25 years' experience of the electronic, virtual workplace by John Gundry B.Sc. Ph.D., Knowledge Ability's Founder and Director. John has personally trained thousands of people from hundreds of organisations on three continents in virtual teams, remote working and flexible working.
John has a background in psychology, communications systems, organisational consulting and virtual work and learning. He has worked in research, government service, small businesses and international corporations.
He combines thought leadership and innovation with academic rigour and world-class professional experience of the wired world. A pioneer of virtual working in the late 1980s, John started training and consulting in distributed work and virtual teaming in 1991. At that time, he was also Research Director for the world's first virtual university. In 1993 he founded Knowledge Ability Ltd, betting (correctly) that working together apart would be the future of work. Since then he has trail-blazed successful business innovations in e-working, e-learning and agility, which are now widely imitated.
John is a graduate of the Western Behavioral Sciences (San Diego) International Executive Forum, a past Associate Editor of the journal Interacting with Computers, a past member of the Industry Advisory Board of the Journal of E-Working and a member of the Information Overload Research Group.
In 2004, 2005 and 2006, John co-chaired, co-organised and co-sponsored GOING VIRTUAL - The Future of Work, the Asia-Pacific conferences on virtual teaming and remote working.
John speaks on "e-" topics and occasionally authors articles and papers for the press and academic journals (see our news page). He is co-author of the first book on what is today called Business Agility, which sets a strategic framework for virtual working and virtual organisations:
