Kiki Mulliner M.Ed, Ed.D. (abd)


My goal is to help organizations focus on finding the best way to leverage and integrate formal and informal learning methods to help them meet very specific performance goals. Given the rate of technological change, changes in the global market, and the agility businesses need to respond to those changes; employees need to learn not only how to do a job, but also how to solve complex problems and innovate to remain competitive. My ability to link theory to practice helps drive organizational development functions to deliver results that align with strategic direction, allow for future growth, and provide employees with an atmosphere they want to succeed in.
I have conducted critical analyses and needs assessments in order to communicate meaningful actionable results back to clients in reports and presentations that drive organizational change. Based on those analyses I have leveraged key technologies to design, develop and implement over fifty programs and interventions in a variety of delivery media to develop employees based solidly on individual, team, and organizational learning theory. This has included guiding the selection of three LCMS systems to create learning solutions that have been deployed on many of the leading LMSs.
I am a current doctoral candidate at Columbia University in Adult Learning and Organizational Leadership with over fifteen years of experience consulting with organizations and internal departments to align & develop desired performance outcomes with critical organizational goals and objectives. This has required me to work closely with clients at all levels from top executives to line workers to assess the gap between the current and desired states in their organizations and help them create strategies to close those gaps. I have published in the area of collaborative learning and creating effective on boarding programs and my research interests include how teams learn to solve complex problems and innovate in organizations and how that learning becomes a living part of the organization.
