Biography

Ph.D., Schulich School of Business, York University (Canada): Professor William H.A. Johnson teaches in the Masters of Project Mgmt (MPM) and undergraduate business programs at Penn State. He was interim Director of the MBA program from 2013 to 2014. His research and teaching interests include innovation, strategy and international management. His research is published in a number of innovation-based journals including: Research Policy, Technovation, IEEE Transactions on Engineering Management, Research-Technology Management, International Journal of Technology Management, Journal of International Management, Journal of Intellectual Capital, Engineering Management Journal and Entrepreneurship: Theory and Practice. He has consulted for pharmaceutical companies and the National Research Council in Canada and has been honored with a number of accolades for research on innovation and knowledge management. He recently authored a new book for Business Expert Press entitled “Innovation in China: The Tail of the Dragon” as well as “Project Strategy and Strategic Portfolio Analysis: A Primer” co-authored with Dr. Diane Parente. In 2012, he spent 3 months as Visiting Professor at Jilin University in Changchun, China when the average temperature was negative 25 degrees Fahrenheit!


Teaching 

My teaching philosophy is to engage students by educing (i.e. ‘drawing out’ as the basis for education) their potential to excel at the philosophy of business and international business practices. All of the courses I teach involve strategy, which I see as the ‘philosophy’ topic of the business curriculum. That is, strategy is fundamentally about the ‘why’s’ of doing business and not just the ‘how’s’ and ‘what’s’. Technical schools can teach practical business skills but may do a poor job of developing the student’s ability to see the big picture and actually think about what is going on. I strive to develop leaders, not just doers. I use cases, learning by doing exercises and simulation, etc. to build on students’ textbook knowledge of strategy, international management and innovation. The main goal is to produce graduates that are capable of understanding, articulating and enacting ethical business practices at a strategic level of thinking, with the aim that all of my students will at least understand what is going on in the board room and beyond, if not running the show themselves.

A key to all of this is my belief that learning in a classroom setting is a group experience. There is only one reason for students to meet together with their Professor in a classroom (whether real or virtual) and that is to learn from each other. While I take a strong leadership role in this learning process and often will take the stage to lead the class, fellow students are also important sources of knowledge and insight (at all levels of learning) so I always encourage multiple levels of interaction.
