Monmouth / Academics / Faculty Profile

Steven J. Kerno

Academic Biography:
By day, I work as a parts cross-reference analyst for John Deere. At night, I have the honor and privilege of being an adjunct instructor for Monmouth College.

Monmouth College students are very curious, respectful, and serious about succeeding. I always look for opportunities to introduce them to guest speakers who have been successful in the many careers available in the world of work.

Research Interests:
My primary research interests include the difficulties companies face in confronting the reality of institutional isomorphism, or the self-apparent "sameness" present across the organizational spectrum.

The community of practice approach to learning, as well as how organizations acquire and share knowledge is also very important to me, as both companies and careers become more fluid, and less static, in modern society.

Connecting the talents, skills, and abilities of engineers and businesspeople.
