Editor-in-chief, Booz & Company and strategy+business.

"Art Kleiner is an author, educator and consultant with a background in business management, interactive media, corporate environmentalism, scenario planning, and organizational learning. He is the author of Who Really Matters: The Core Group Theory of Power, Privilege and Success (Doubleday/Nicholas Brealey, 2003), praised by the Financial Times for its “entertainment, erudition and lucidity” and by Good to Great author Jim Collins for making “explicable what had previously been mysterious.” His previous book, The Age of Heretics (Doubleday/Nicholas Brealey, 1996), a history of post–World War II management thought, was a runner-up for the Edwin G. Booz award for most innovative management book. He also recently authored the Booz Allen Hamilton 90th anniversary history, Helping Clients Envision the Future.

"As editorial director of the Fifth Discipline Fieldbook project with Peter Senge, Kleiner developed the popular “fieldbook” business format and produced three best-selling coauthored works, including The Dance of Change (Doubleday, 1999) and Schools That Learn (Doubleday, 2000). Between 2001 and 2004 he was the director of research and publications for the Dialogos consulting firm in Cambridge, MA. He has contributed to the Harvard Business Review, The New York Times Magazine, and numerous other publications.

"At MIT’s Center for Organizational Learning, Kleiner codeveloped (with MIT researcher George Roth) a pioneering form of organizational storytelling, the “learning history.” He teaches courses on the future to graduate-level new media students at New York University’s Interactive Telecommunications Program. In the early 1980s, he was research editor of The Whole Earth Catalog, overseeing its coverage of personal computers, and editor of CoEvolution Quarterly. He received a Masters of Journalism degree from the University of California at Berkeley in 1986." [1]
