Biography

Kieran Conboy is Dean of the College of Business, Public Policy & Law at NUI Galway. He previously worked for Accenture Consulting and the University of New South Wales in Australia.

Kieran teaches information systems innovation, agile and lean project management, portfolio management, and contemporary models such as crowdsourcing and crowdfunding. He teaches to undergraduate, postgraduate, MBA and executive audiences. He has, together with four leading international colleagues, recently developed a global standard for information systems curriculum content, published in the Communications of the Association of Information Systems.

He has advised and published widely in the areas of management and workplace innovation, and particularly in the area of agile and lean processes in software organisations. He has worked with organisations such as Microsoft, Atlassian, Cisco Systems, Suncorp, and Fidelity Investments, as well as many SMEs. Kieran has also advised international public sector organisations in the health and education sectors. He is the Principal Investigator of a Science Foundation Ireland project in the area, involving 11 research fellows and Ph.D researchers, and has received over €4m in research grants from industry, the European Commission, Enterprise Ireland and the Irish Research Council.

Kieran has published over 100 articles in leading international journals and conferences including Information Systems Research, the European Journal of Information Systems, Information Systems Journal, the Journal of the AIS, IEEE Software, the International Conference in Information Systems and the European Conference in Information Systems. He is an editor of the European Journal of Information Systems and has chaired international conferences in his field including the Lean Enterprise Software and Systems (LESS2013) in Galway and XP2008 in Limerick.

Kieran also advises on funding agency policy and practice and has advised the E.U. Commission as well as national funding bodies in Ireland, the U.S. and Australia. He is now leading an Irish Research Council funded project to adapt, implement and validate the use of crowdfunding and crowdsourcing techniques in the grant award policies and mechanisms of Science Foundation Ireland, Enterprise Ireland as well as the IRC.

Kieran was also a Fulbright award recipient in 2009 where he spent time at Carnegie Mellon University working with the Software Engineering Institute on the business value of IT systems.

Research Interests

Kieran is leading a multidisciplinary research cluster in NUI Galway on Enterprise Agility involving a team of 18 academic staff, 5 postdoctoral researchers and 12 PhDs. Kieran is currently involved in numerous national and international projects in this area, and has worked or is working with many companies on their agile initiatives including Intel, Microsoft, Accenture, HP, and Fidelity Investments. In association with ITAG, Kieran established the Agile Forum, a monthly research and industry seminar series which attracts between 40 and 60 companies per event. Kieran has held chairing roles of international conferences including the European Conference in Information Systems (Galway 2008) and his research has been published in various leading journals. He is also associate editor of the European Journal of Information Systems, and has been a guest editor on special issues of top journals on the topics such as qualitative IS research and agility. Kieran is currently the Head of Research for the School of Business & Economics. Kieran’s lecturing activities focus primarily on the areas of IS Innovation, IS Project Management, IS Strategy and IS Research Methods to undergraduate, postgraduate and MBA audiences.
