 Speaker’s Bio:

Dr. Edgar H. Schein is one of the leading voices in OD, best known for his work in organizational culture, which he says consists of three levels: artifacts, espoused values, and underlying assumptions.

He joined MIT’s Sloan School of Management in 1956 and was made a professor of organizational psychology and management in 1964. He currently holds the title of Sloan Fellows Professor of Management Emeritus. His clients have included Digital Equipment Corporation, H-P, Apple, Motorola, Exxon, Shell, BP, Con Edison, and many other corporations and agencies around the world.

Dr. Schein has been a prolific researcher, writer, teacher, and consultant. Besides his numerous articles in professional journals, he has authored fourteen books, including Organizational Psychology (3rd ed., 1980), Career Dynamics (1978), Organizational Culture and Leadership (1985, 1992, 2004), Process Consultation Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 (1969, 1987, 1988), Process Consultation Revisited (1999), and The Corporate Culture Survival Guide (1999).

Mr. Peter Schein is a strategy consultant in Silicon Valley. He provides help to start-ups and expansion-phase technology companies.

Peter’s expertise draws on over twenty years of industry experience in marketing and corporate development at technology pioneers. In his early career he developed new products and services at Pacific Bell and Apple Computer, Inc. (including eWorld and Newton). He led product marketing efforts at Silicon Graphics Inc., Concentric Network Corporation (XO Communications), and Packeteer (BlueCoat). He developed a deep experience base and passion for internet infrastructure as the Web era dawned in the mid-1990s.

Thereafter, Peter spent eleven years in corporate development and product strategy at Sun Microsystems. At Sun, Peter led numerous minority equity investments in mission-critical technology ecosystems. He drove acquisitions of technology innovators that developed into multi-million dollar product lines at Sun. Through these experiences developing new strategies organically and merging smaller entities into a large company, Peter developed a keen focus on the underlying organizational culture challenges that growth engenders in innovation-driven enterprises.
