Randy teaches courses in leadership, undergraduate and graduate capstone course, organizational behavior, strategy implementation and change. Both capstone courses are intended as integrative learning experiences occurring at the end of the degree program and they emphasize practical problem solving and opportunity development in real-world organizational contexts. Team consultative or issue analysis projects provide one of the primary contexts for learning and practice with skills and competencies gained in other disciplinary classes. Both capstone courses also address issues of competitive strategy, leadership and planned change.

Randy has received many honors and awards, including Exemplar of the Finest in Organizational Development Effectiveness, awarded by the Organizational Institute, Franklin Award by the U.S. Postal Service, Distinguished Research Award, and the Miller Distinguished Chair of Management to name a few.
