Con­sulta­tion on Ap­point­ment

Al­ex­an­der Kaiser stud­ied Eco­nom­ics and Com­puter Science at the Uni­versity of Vi­enna. After fin­ish­ing his main study (Eco­nom­ics and Com­puter Science, with hon­ors), he worked for al­most two years at Siemens Öster­reich in the group of or­gan­isa­tion devel­op­ment and in­form­a­tion tech­no­logy. He left this pos­i­tion for a pos­i­tion as re­search and teach­ing assist­ant at the In­sti­tute of In­form­a­tion Busi­ness at the Uni­versity of Eco­nom­ics and Busi­ness. He fin­ished a doc­toral study pro­gram at the Vi­enna Uni­versity of Eco­nom­ics and Busi­ness with hon­ors and star­ted with his hab­il­it­a­tion, which he fin­ished in Decem­ber 1999. For this work he re­ceived two awards, the “Kar­dinal In­nitzer Förder­ung­s­preis” and the “Sen­ator Wil­helm Wil­fling Förder­ung­s­preis”.

Since March 2000 he is as­so­ci­ated pro­fessor at the In­sti­tute of In­form­a­tion Busi­ness. Fur­ther­more Dr. Kaiser has fin­ished a cer­ti­fied coach­ing train­ing pro­gram in the field of sys­tem­ic-­con­struct­iv­ist coach­ing and a cer­ti­fied pro­fes­sional coach­ing train­ing pro­gram in the field of sys­tem­ic-ana­lytic coach­ing and is the founder and head of WaVe – center for voca­tion coach­ing.

At the Uni­versity of Eco­nom­ics and Busi­ness he is the head of the re­search group “know­ledge-­based man­age­ment” (wu.ac.at/kbm)

Through his aca­demic oc­cu­pa­tion and edu­ca­tion and his var­ied prac­tical ex­per­i­ences he had the chance to gain a broad know­ledge base in di­verse fields like eco­nom­ics, know­ledge-­based man­age­ment, in­form­a­tion re­trieval and data­bases, as well as coach­ing and fa­cil­it­at­ing. This en­abled him to build up a net­work of mis­cel­laneous re­search col­leagues and in­dus­trial part­ners and to carry out in­ter­dis­cip­lin­ary re­search by link­ing the field of know­ledge-­based man­age­ment with the fields of coach­ing and fa­cil­it­at­ing.

His vi­sion is to com­bine the­ory and prac­tice by link­ing the fields of know­ledge-­based man­age­ment and coach­ing and so help­ing to util­ize ex­ist­ing know­ledge in sys­tems more ef­fect­ively as well as to gen­er­ate new know­ledge.
