YOUR FACULTY DIRECTOR

Deborah Ancona

Seley Distinguished Professor of Management

Ancona’s pioneering research into how successful teams operate led directly to the concept of X-teams as a vehicle for driving innovation within large organizations. Her work also focuses on the concept of distributed leadership, as well as the development of research-based models that enable organizations to foster creative leadership at every level.

She is the author of the book X-teams: How to Build Teams That Lead, Innovate, and Succeed and the related article, “In Praise of the Incomplete Leader”. Her previous book, Managing for the Future: Organizational Behavior and Processes, centers on the skills and processes needed in today’s diverse and changing organization.

Ancona also holds a BA and an MS in psychology from the University of Pennsylvania and a PhD in management from Columbia University.
