Dr Timothy Mansfield
Tim Mansfield is a strategist, culture consultant and futures researcher, specialising in the cultural sector. He has been the CEO of the Interaction Consortium since August 2016.
Prior to joining the IC in 2015, I worked as a consultant and academic researcher for a couple of decades.
I am one of the co-authors of the 2014 CSIRO report "Innovation Study: Challenges and Opportunities for Australia’s Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums" which used foresight methods as a way to integrate perceptions of the chief challenges facing the GLAM sector in Australia.
Around that time, I worked as a professional futurist teaching and practicing foresight as a resource for strategy and innovation for individuals and companies.
I have held senior research roles at Queensland University of Technology in the Smart Services CRC, at NICTA (now Data61) and I spent ten years working in collaboration and social media research at the Enterprise Distributed Systems CRC.
I have a PhD in Computer Science from the University of Queensland. Once upon a time I used to actually write code. Now I just talk about it.
Here are some publications that had an impact from my time in research –
- Mansfield, Tim, et al. "Innovation study: challenges and opportunities for Australia’s galleries, libraries, archives and museums." (2014).
- Fitzpatrick, Geraldine, Simon Kaplan, and Tim Mansfield. "Physical spaces, virtual places and social worlds: A study of work in the virtual." Proceedings of the 1996 ACM conference on Computer supported cooperative work. 1996.
