About John

John MorrisIn February 2009, John left a position with technology leader Hewlett-Packard where he worked for 13 years in the technical training function. At HP, John began by creating end-user training for an SAP project. Promoted to Engineer Training, John led entry-level and mastery-level training for thermal inkjet engineers designing inkjet printers. His last position as Learning Program Manager in HP’s Center of Expertise in Technical Development — gave him training responsibility for global supply chain, business process management, innovation, problem solving and decision making.

Now, he is embarking on a new adventure. Calling upon 11 years of experience on the board of directors for three local, not-for-profit organizations and his personal productivity practices, John is melding together a combination of coaching for productivity, application of large scale change and project management practices and a passion for making his community more livable. In late April he began an apprenticeship in Oregon Cascades West Council of Governments for technology services to acquire practical IT skills that can be used in local service. Then in June he will begin university teaching leading two sections of Business Strategy for Oregon State University.

John’s background includes a broad range of experiences in Human Resources, working more than 28 years in high tech, health care, insurance, wholesale, retail and manufacturing. He has worked as an independent consultant and was educated as an MBA. He is active in his community promoting bicycle safety, community arts and high school athletics.
