Date of Joining:



  • Lakshminarayana Kompella, Ph.D., before joining TAPMI worked at the National Institute of Technology Warangal (2018-2023). He teaches IT/Analytics, innovation, and technology management subjects for Master/Ph.D. management students. IT/Analytics subjects and electives are on industry 4.0 themes connectivity, data, and computing – cloud, Web 3.0, blockchain, sensors; intelligence – machine learning, deep learning, big data, and time series forecasting; systems and HCI – Business analysis, E-Government, Agile and product management, AR/VR and automation. Before completing the doctorate (FPM) from IIM Indore with a thesis on the technological transition of fast-changing systems (E-Governance), he worked in IT for 19 years. The companies include multi-national IT product and service companies.  

    He is a researcher and consultant on socio-technical systems, software engineering, and E-Governance. His specialty is innovation management and technology forecasting of fast-changing technologies, such as IT, by identifying necessary organizational and social changes to enable the diffusion and absorption of technology. He is a reviewer for peer-reviewed high-impact journals indexed in ABDC/Scopus/Web of Science.
