Kathleen M. Eisenhardt
Stanford Technology Ventures Program

KATHLEEN M. EISENHARDT is Professor of Strategy and Organization at Stanford University. She is widely known for her work on strategy, strategic decision making, and innovation in rapidly changing and highly competitive markets. She is the coauthor (with Shona L. Brown) of the book Competing on the Edge: Strategy as Structured Chaos, published by Harvard Business School Press. Using analogies from The Grateful Dead to the Tour de France and scientific underpinnings from complexity and time-paced evolutionary theories, this book describes how to compete successfully in dynamic markets.

Professor Eisenhardt's current research centers on collaboration and competition in the converging computing, telecommunications, and semiconductor industries, from the perspectives of complexity, evolutionary and game theories. For her past research on fast strategic decision making, she won the Pacific Telesis Foundation Award. She has also received the Whittemore Prize (with D. Charles Galunic) for her writing on organizing global corporations in high velocity markets, and the Stern Award (with Claudia B. Schoonhoven) for her work on the formation of strategic alliances in entrepreneurial companies. She was Co-Principal Investigator on the Global Electronics Study for Andersen Consulting.

At Stanford, Professor Eisenhardt has received several teaching awards including selection as one of the Top 8 Professors at Stanford and her course has been selected by students as one of the top 10 at the University. She also serves as the Associate Director of the Stanford Computer Industry Project (SCIP).

Professor Eisenhardt has consulted for a number of major corporations on topics surrounding strategy and organization in rapidly changing markets with particular emphasis on strategy, strategic decision making, product innovation, creation of cross-business synergies, and top management team dynamics. Her clients have included Intel Corporation, Hewlett-Packard Company, and SAP. She is a member of the McKinsey Strategy Forum.

Professor Eisenhardt is a Fellow of the Academy of Management and President of the OMT Division of the Academy. She is a former Senior Editor of Organization Science, a co-editor of the upcoming special issue on complexity theory, and a member of the editorial boards of Administrative Science Quarterly and Strategic Management Journal. Her B.S. in Mechanical Engineering is from Brown University and her Ph.D. is from Stanford's Graduate School of Business.
