When Stanford's Graduate School of Business opened its impressive new campus last year, it chose one professor to engage in a public debate as part of the school's official opening ceremonies. It was Jeffrey Pfeffer, the highly provocative organizational behavior professor and one of the most influential management thinkers in the world. Pfeffer, who persuasively argued the merits of playing politics in organizations to get ahead, did not disappoint. To a packed auditorium, he delivered a stirring and challenging defense of the crucial role that power and politics play in organizational life.
For more than 33 years, he has been teaching courses at Stanford on human resources management, organizational behavior, and power and politics. He is the author or co-author of 13 books, including The Knowing-Doing Gap: How Smart Companies Turn Knowledge Into Action and Power.
This highly diverse cohort of star teachers work in virtually every discipline.
