The Principal

 

John Smyrk worked in various branches of engineering during the 60s and returned to full time study at Monash University where he gained an honours degree in econometrics and a masters in operations research. 

After eight years as an academic, he founded Sigma Management Science—but retained his links with academia through part-time teaching appointments at a number of business schools.

Since the mid-90s John has been a Visiting Fellow at the Australian National University—where he teaches business project management in the School of Management, Marketing and International Business.  (more …)

Membership of SigmaField

 

Sigma Management Science is a member of SigmaField -- a collaboration of consulting professionals. SigmaField is referred to as a "virtual" firm.

When assignments require skills that go beyond the capabilities of the individual practices, then the practices undertake the assignments as a collaborative venture.

While the work is completed under the SigmaField banner, commercial responsibility for the engagement is assumed by one of the members.

Because members of SigmaField are all solo, or boutique consultancies, they have neither the motive nor the resources to arbitrarily expand assignments. Their approach is based on getting in and getting out when the client's objective has been achieved.
