Bio

Jenny Leonard's main research areas are Business Information Systems Strategy, and Project Management and Organisations. She researches how information systems strategies can be related to strategies for the organisation as a whole; and how project activities depend on, and change, the organisation in which they operate.

Jenny teaches Business Information Systems Strategy at postgraduate level, and contributes to the teaching of Business Process Integration and Enterprise Systems. She is a SAP ERP 6.0 Certified Business Associate.

Prior to joining the University of Sydney in 2003, Jenny worked for fifteen years as a senior manager in information systems, leading operational and project teams.
