College of Management and Technology
Dr. Jordan as awarded a Doctor of Business Administration degree focusing on technology and innovation management. Degree awarded by the School of Advanced Studies, University of Phoenix. University of Phoenix is accredited by The Higher Learning Commission and is a member of the North Central Association. The Doctor of Business Administration degree is also accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP).
Dr. Jordan’s research focused on the potential technologies that may replace the semiconductors that form the basis for the world’s computing infrastucture. This research was done within the context of the theory of Disruptive Innovation. The results of his research suggests the replacement techonlogy semiconductors would likely emerge within 30 years; that technology would probably be biology based [perhaps RNA]; the organizational structure best suited to facilitate that emergence would a meritocacy; and the organizational leadership approach best suited for that emergance would be transformational. A tangential outcome of his research, Dr. Jordan became adept in the use of the Delphi method of collaborative decision making. This appropach has the benefit of mitigating the well understood biases associated with decision making in a group setting.
As a result of his research Dr. Jordan is an authority on how complex organizations adapt to changing environments, specifically how those organizations adapt to techlogical discontinuities and disruptive innovation. Areas of research interest include organizational ethics and leadership theory in addition to technology and innovation management. His work experience has been focused on systems engineering in a complex environment.
Dr. Jordan has been a Research Methodologist with Walden University since June 2015. Teaching experience is focused on helping doctoral students develop their capstone study. Once the study is developed, Dr. Jordan acts as mentor and study committee chairperson helping doctoral students through the review and approval process.
