Laurence Lock Lee

The majority of my professional experience relates to knowledge management and the creation of knowledge sharing business relationships. I am an experienced practitioner with social network analysis, also called organizational network analysis and value network analysis techniques. My professional goal is to educate companies on managing peer to peer relationships, or what I call “managing sideways”. With Optimice we aim to build management tools supporting peer to peer relationships and sustainable partnerships. I have applied my experience across many industries, both public and private. I have published a book on IT Governance in a Networked world and a major report on Visual Markets, a market research technique focused on business relationships.
