Uday Karmarker

UDAY KARMARKAR
The Los Angeles Times Professor of Management and Policy

UDAY KARMARKAR has several re-search studies going on, but the most ambitious — and the one most likely to have the biggest impact — takes a look at how today’s information technology is changing business management.

Karmarkar, who has held the Times Chair since arriving at UCLA’s Anderson School in 1994, says his Business and Information Technologies Project, which has research partners in five countries and is expected to expand to 20 within a few years, has the potential to affect business practices worldwide.

Just as industrialization changed society and industry decades ago, “the way businesses work is changing again,” he explains. “Companies even now report that they are becoming flatter in terms of organization. Many more tasks and whole processes are being outsourced. Employees are less anchored to desks or cubicles. That changes the way companies work.”
