His book, Transforming Higher Education: A Vision for Learning in the 21st Century (1995), was instrumental in providing a framework for advancing the concept of transformative e-learning in the late 1990s. Transforming e-Knowledge: A Revolution in the Sharing of Knowledge (2003) heralded the arrival of the transformative generation of web services, social networking, and knowledge-sharing capabilities. Norris consults on planning, executing strategy, and developing organizational capacity with a wide range of colleges and universities, corporations, professional societies and associations, and other nonprofits. His recent work on action analytics is enabling colleges and universities to change decision-making behavior; build cultures of performance measurement and improvement; and align institutional strategies, actions, and metrics.
