Joel Kline, Ph.D.

I’m Dr. Joel Kline, a college professor and a strategic consultant for technology. My specialty is to make, manage, and measure digital engagement communities. I also have interests and skills in organizational communication, Project Management, Internet Marketing, and User Experience (UX).

Over 25 years of experience in private and public sectors, entrepreneurship, and academia has taught me the importance of people. Although I work from an industry standard triangle that places people, technology, and information as its sides, for me, the people side is most important.

In addition to my role as a tenured Professor of Digital Communication at Lebanon Valley College, I also serve as a Strategic Consultant to Phase 2 Solutions, LLC, a company that integrates Purpose, People, Platform, and Process together into successful communities for membership organizations, non-profits, and corporate digital communities (e.g. innovation circles).
