Jeff Angus is an active management consultant specializing in work for entrepreneurial organizations. He's been an award-winning manager and director in large and mid-sized organizations.
He's currently a Contributing Editor at InfoWorld, a leading weekly publication that covers technical and business analysis of key solutions and technologies that benefit large organizations. He writes the management column for CIO Insight, and a weekly column on sabermetrics (scientific baseball statistics) for The Seattle Times.
His consulting focuses in three areas: coaching failing managers and departments, knowledge management and change management with clients in business, government, & non-profit sectors. While his work is concentrated in the entrepreneurial sector, he occasionally does "Red Adair" jobs for larger organizations that have failed completed or incomplete projects that were done by large global consulting companies.
He's currently promoting the May, 2006-release Management by Baseball: The Official Rules for Winning Management in Any Field (Harper Collins), and doing corporate presentations and event speaking on the MBB theme.
Angus was an aide for the U.S. Senate Small Business Committee and a legislative researcher for a U.S. Senator. He reported on baseball for both the Associated Press and United Press International, and was a sportswriter for the Seattle Sun. His commentaries on political economy and business evolution have appeared on the op-ed pages of many papers, including The New York Times, The Baltimore Sun, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, and The Seattle Times. He's been a regular opinion columnist for InfoWorld, InformationWeek and Knowledge Management. He's been a professional radio broadcaster for stations in California, Ohio and Washington.
He was Director of Marketing Operations for Farallon Computing, a $45 million computer company, where he managed a group of 23 people and a $5 million budget. He founded and was Director of the InfoWorld Test Center, and was Director of Strategic Consulting Services for Lighthouse Consulting Group. He's worked in agriculture, manufacturing, transportation and services, and has work experience in the private, public and non-profit sectors.
Angus is a member of SABR (the Society for American Baseball Research). SABR's mission is to foster the study of baseball, to assist in uncovering the history of the game, to promote the distribution of baseball research, and to stimulate interest in baseball. SABR, which is pronounced "saber" and whose acronym is the root of the word sabermetrics (mathematical tools to analyze baseball), is about more than stats. Many members pursue narrative history and other specialties.
Angus makes public appearances at trade shows (including Comdex, Australian MacWorld, Portable Computer Expo) as a presenter and panel member, appears as a guest on television (such as the public television business show, Serious Money and Dolan's Unscripted), and frequently appears as a guest on radio shows to talk about MBB, management and technology.
