Professor of Public Management Donald Haider served on the Budget Advisory Group to Illinois Governor-elect Rod Blagojevich. The group delivered its final report in early January. This Blue Ribbon Panel was comprised of former City of Chicago and State of Illinois budget directors. Prof. Haider served as Chicago’s budget director in 1979-1980.

Professor Wallace Hopp, co-director of the Master of Manufacturing and Management program, has been named the editor-in-chief of Management Science, a flagship journal of the INFORMS society, affiliated with the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences.

Marketing Professor Dawn Iacobucci and Bobby Calder, the Charles H. Kellstadt Distinguished Professor of Marketing, have co-edited Kellogg on Integrated Marketing (John Wiley & Sons, 2003). The text is the follow-up volume to the successful Kellogg on Marketing (John Wiley & Sons, 2001). Both books have already been widely translated. Prof. Iacobucci is also editor of the premier marketing journal, Journal of Consumer Research.

Mark Jeffery, assistant professor of technology, recently completed a series of 14 case studies on information technology management and related financial decision making. These cases are the foundation for his IT Portfolio Management course, and for the new Kellogg Executive Education Program “Driving Strategic Results Through IT Portfolio Management.” The IT portfolio management case studies are available online. Prof. Jeffery and the Kellogg Center for Research on Technology and Innovation have been awarded $120,000 from Teradata, a division of NCR, for research in real options valuation of enterprise data warehousing investments. He has also just completed a $70,000 contract with the United States Navy e-Business Operations Office where he directed two Kellogg student teams in consulting projects on knowledge management and smart card applications. Prof. Jeffery’s chapter on return on investment analysis for e-business projects was recently accepted for publication in the new Wiley Encyclopedia of the Internet, and he has been invited to join the editorial board for the International Journal of Information Technology Education.
