Professor Leslie Willcocks of the Information Systems and Innovation Group at the London School of Economics and Political Science was recently interviewed by Professional Outsourcing. Upon showing me the paper copy of the article, Leslie chuckled and said, “The photographer has made me the George Clooney of academics”!

Leslie has an amazing sense of humour! But more to the point, his interview provides keen insight into government procurement concerns, especially in relation to cloud computing. Leslie draws on his own research to explain how there is a need for innovation, change, development of centres of excellence, and ‘people capability’ in the government to make better use of cloud computing. This could lead to a more agile organization or as he terms it “cloud-corporation”.
