Biography

Harvard Business School
Senior Fellow, Executive Education

Mark C. Maletz is a senior fellow at the Harvard Business School and faculty chair of the Executive Education program, The HR-Executive Suite Connection. He is an internationally recognized thought leader in the areas of strategy, leadership development and organizational transformation. His research and consulting activities focus on helping companies to rethink their business strategies, improve their leadership capabilities, and reshape their cultures with an orientation towards innovation, values and performance. He has been responsible for more than 60 large-scale leadership development and organizational change initiatives in companies across a variety of industries, both in the Americas and in Europe.

Previously, Maletz was a partner at McKinsey & Company and a leader of the firm’s organization practice. At McKinsey, he also led a major research initiative on innovation and "Managing in the Whitespace" (which resulted in an HBR article). He was also a professor at Babson College where he pioneered experiential approaches to leadership development and the shaping of organizational culture – including work in the area of corporate entrepreneurship. Maletz has developed a unique ability to work across levels of an organization and to bring new "lenses" (i.e. ways of seeing the world and workplace) to the organization.

His graduate work in Cognitive and Computer Science was done at the University of Michigan and the Industrial Technology Institute. He is a member of the boards of BTG Pactual (lead independent director) and Global Capacity, chairman emeritus of the EastWest Institute, and a founding member of the Council of Economic Advisors for the Navajo Nation.
