Derrick Neufeld is an Associate Professor of Information Systems at the Ivey Business School. He has a B.Comm (Honours) degree from the University of Manitoba, the Chartered Professional Accounting, Certified Management Accounting (CPA, CMA) designations, and a Ph.D. from Ivey. Before joining Ivey as a professor in 1999 he held positions as a systems analyst and management consultant, and taught for several years in the Asper School of Business at the University of Manitoba.

Professor Neufeld’s research examines how computer mediation impacts important individual and organizational outcomes — for example, mobile worker productivity, open source community participation, virtual team effectiveness, and remote leadership efficacy. His work has been published in various technology and management journals such as Journal of Management Information Systems, Journal of Information Technology, Journal of Engineering and Technology Management, Computers in Human Behavior, Leadership Quarterly, and European Journal of Information Systems. In 2009 he received the Information Systems Senior Scholar’s Best IS Publication Award, and in 2016 he was awarded the Emerald Literati Award for a paper published in the Journal of Managerial Psychology.


Neufeld teaches in Ivey’s HBA, MBA, MSc and EMBA programs in Canada and Hong Kong, and frequently works with doctoral students. He has been honoured with several teaching awards including Western University Students’ Council Teaching Honour Roll Award of Excellence. He has authored more than 50 business cases.

In his free time Neufeld enjoys tinkering with technology, playing squash, roasting coffee, and refining his skills as an artisan chocolatier.
