Biographical Info
Dr. Alex Bennet is Professor, Knowledge and Innovation Management, at Bangkok University and Co-Founder/Director of the Mountain Quest Institute. Located in the Allegheny Mountains of West Virginia, the Institute is focused on achieving growth and understanding through quests for knowledge, consciousness and meaning. Alex is the former Chief Knowledge Officer and Deputy Chief Information Officer for Enterprise Integration of the U.S. Department of the Navy, simultaneously serving as internal KM consultant for the U.S. government and Co-Chair of the Federal Knowledge Management Working Group. As cited in the Distinguished Public Service Award from the Secretary of the Navy, Dr. Bennet led innovative Navy and Marine Corps enterprise knowledge technology and information management efforts that transformed the DON as it entered the 21st century. “Her singular mastery of the complexities of this vital force multiplier function effected unequaled advances in DON’s operations.” Alex believes in the multidimensionality and interconnectedness of humanity as we move out of infancy into full consciousness. She has authored hundreds of papers and co-authored thirteen books with her partner Dr. David Bennet, including a new theory of the firm based on the Intelligent Complex Adaptive System model for organizations, ground-breaking work with the government of Canada on Knowledge Mobilization, and books on knowledge, experiential learning, decision-making and leadership. More recently, the Bennets have spearheaded development of the Intelligent Social Change Journey (ISCJ) model, supported by a five-book series entitled The Profundity and Bifurcation of Change. The ISCJ is a developmental journey of the body, mind and heart, moving from the heaviness of cause-and-effect linear extrapolations, to the fluidity of co-evolving with our environment, to the lightness of breathing our thought and feelings into reality. In further support of this journey, 22 Conscious Look Books—conversational books for the graduate of life experience—are available in the Possibilities that are YOU! series. Alex may be reached at
