Douglas Scherer

Dr. Douglas Scherer (Ed.D., CISA, CSM) travels several paths. As a technology leader and relationship manager he leads highly leveraged programs, most recently realized in a project that produced a 35x benefit/cost ratio in the first year, while adding deeper levels of analytical control to the users. In 2016 he was the recipient of a Citi Private Bank Dazzle award, and was nominated for a Citi Private Bank Client Service Excellence Award in 2015.

As an independent researcher, he holds interests in real-time decision making during extreme events, adult development, corporate ethics and compliance, reflective and critical learning, conscious leader development, embodied knowing, and mindfulness in organizations. He furthers his alignment towards these perspectives through classes taken at the University of Massachusetts Medical School Center for Mindfulness.

This unique dual-background is accompanied by many published articles, book chapters, and papers. His Oracle Magazine articles and international Oracle conference presentations focused on new Oracle database functionality. At the same time, his roles as author and series technical advisor yielded a body of Oracle technology books and videos published by McGraw-Hill and Prentice Hall. Dr. Scherer was honored when a section of his research on leader development was selected for presentation at the Academy of Management annual meeting in Montreal.

Dr. Scherer’s long-term affiliation with Columbia University includes five years as lecturer and three-years as Chair of the former Database and Design Certification program, and working as faculty in the Executive Master of Science in Technology Management program.
