Tom Harnish provides clients with unique insights into emerging business trends and actionable strategies for successfully implementing new ways of working. As Senior Scientist at the Telework Research Network, he is a leader, innovator, entrepreneur, scientist, geek, skeptic - and incurably curious. His expertise lies in remote work strategies, results-based management, computers and information systems, and new product development.
He learned what he knows as a carrier-based Navy flyer, by teaching information management to senior military and government executives in Washington, managing projects as a consulting scientist at Booz Allen & Hamilton, leading brilliant hardware and software engineers as senior scientist at the Online Computer Library Center (OCLC), and inspiring innovations as a division director at Reynolds and Reynolds (computers, not tobacco). As an entrepreneur, Tom has conceived, planned and led several successful and not-so-successful ventures - including a (successful) computer services bureau he started while still in college.
Tom has co-authored three business books including Undress For Success - The Naked Truth About Making Money at Home (Wiley 2009), and The Directory of Venture Capital (1996, 2nd edition 2000), and Finding Money: The Small Business Guide To Financing (Wiley 1995). As a freelance writer and award winning photographer, Tom has written over a hundred articles for magazines and websites, and his images have appeared on magazine covers and articles, in museums, and on the Internet. He holds two world aviation speed records.
His passions include photography, flying, astronomy, sailing, and his wife - but not necessarily in that order.
