Constantine Imafidon Tongo is a senior lecturer in the Department of Human Resources Management/Organisational Behaviour at Lagos Business School. He currently facilitates sessions and teaches organisational behavior in the MBA and PhD programmes of the school respectively. 
He began his professional career as a business development manager of a manufacturing company, the Freedom Group, which was in the business of mining and processing solid minerals in Nigeria. There he served as an internal business consultant with the responsibility of generating new business ideas and expanding the overall frontiers of the company. He later joined Centre piece Management Consultants, where he was involved with facilitating sessions on Manpower Development Programmes organised for giant corporations like the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) and the National Fertilizer Company of Nigeria (NAFCON). 

After enjoying a good feel of industrial life for about six years, his scholarly disposition led him to start a career at Covenant University. At Covenant University he was a faculty member of the Industrial Relations/ Human Resources Management Programme of the institution, and was involved with the teaching of such courses as behavioural science, collective bargaining, motivation and productivity at the university until he joined LBS.    

His strong flair for quantitative analysis provided him with the adequate impetus for   seeking ways of developing operations research-based models (linear programming, dynamic programming, Markov chains and models on artificial intelligence) that can help with the effective allocation of scarce human resources to the various operations of an enterprise. To this end, Tongo’s PhD thesis at the University of Benin, Nigeria became a watershed in the area of effective allocation of police patrol efforts in crime prone areas in Nigeria, and the world over. An excerpt of his PhD thesis has since been published by the International Journal of Operational Research.    

He has many articles which have either been accepted or published in peer reviewed journals such as the International Journal of Management (IJM), Journal of Management Systems (JMS), World Review of Entrepreneurship, Management and Sustainable Development (WREMSD), and Management and Organisational History (MOH).  He has also contributed chapters to some contemporary books on management theory and practice.    
 
Dr Tongo’s areas of research include knowledge management, management of organisational cultures, collective work motivation, public service motivation, organisational commitment and labour-management relations.  He is still very active in research and management consulting.
