Keith Fortowsky is the Chief Technologist/Data Architect at Exceed Analysis. Keith is an Applied Economist (MSc, University of Minnesota) and Computer Systems Analyst. Keith’s professional interests focus upon tools, practices, and strategies to support knowledge-based innovation – starting with the data, but always with the ultimate aim of supporting managers’ evidence-based “strategic conversation”. Keith is currently Coordinator, Institutional Research at the University of Regina (Canada). In this role he develops, maintains, and disseminates “institutional statistics”: the corporate-level record of performance at the University of Regina. Prior to his current position, Keith worked for 20 years in transportation and agricultural research and policy positions, including positions with government and an international engineering consultancy. Much of this work involved development of data systems to support policy analysis. Keith was one of Gary’s early and most enthusiastic clients. Since he couldn’t afford to “buy the company” he has happily settled for becoming an integral part of its advancement.
