UT Tyler Assistant Professor Receives Recognition


Dr. Russell Korte, assistant professor of human resource development at The University of Texas at Tyler, has received high recognition from Elsevier Publishers, Dr. Jim Tarter, College of Business and Technology dean, announced.

His coauthored journal article, “Changing Organizational Culture with Scenario Planning,” was named the “Hottest Article” during 2007 by the publishing organization.

The article was viewed and purchased by more readers in 2007 when compared to all articles appearing in the international research journal Futures. According to Korte, the article explores scenario planning as a tool to help change organizational culture.

“Changing the culture of the organization to adapt to changes in the environment is an important concern for most organizations yet this change is reactive. Scenario planning is presented as a proactive tool for developing plausible alternative futures related to change,” he said.

Combining his research expertise and work experience, Korte has been instrumental in developing the university’s Business Academy, which consists of field-based research that connects external organizational partners and sponsors to the proposed human resource development Ph.D. program within the college.

He holds a Ph.D. in work and human resource education from the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis/St. Paul.
