Dr-Otote-150

Dr. Albert Ototé holds the position of Professor of Human Resources Management, organizational studies, leadership, and entrepreneurial and currently engaged with M.Phil and D.Phil program supervision. Prior to assuming the current position, Dr. Ototé taught at various business schools in Canada and the Gulf region for over 20 years.

Prior to joining the academic community, Dr. Ototé held high profile human resources management positions at the management board secretariat, Ontario, Canada, for over 12 years and provided advice to government. Upon leaving the public service, Dr. Ototé established a management consultancy where he serviced a range of business organizations in the private and public sectors.

Dr. Ototé holds doctoral degree in business administration from the University of Phoenix (U.S.A.), with a focus on entrepreneurial orientation and adaptive leadership. He also earned master of arts degree in human resources management from Vermont College of Norwich University (U.S.A.), with a focus on organizational development and change management.

His research interests include examining: (a) determinants of emergence in the productivity motives of non-management and management groups when viewed through the lenses of complex adaptive systems; (b) impacts of entrepreneurial orientation and environmental turbulence on productivity of management and non-management employee groups; and (c) antecedents of productivity in management and non-management groups when assessed using proxy factors associated with employee satisfaction. Through years of research, Dr. Ototé arrived at significant findings that led to the design of leadership-followership exchange models that could be used by organizations as predictors of productivity for management and non-management groups at the edge of chaos.

Dr. Ototé describes his teaching style as student-centred, while striving for outcome based learning by encouraging students to challenge and test academic precepts, rather than simply accepting them as facts on face value. This robust approach has allowed many of his students to conceptualize models for addressing issues best suited to achieving their organizational objectives.
