About Michele

With Gary Hamel, I'm the co-author of the Wall Sreet Journal Bestseller Humanocracy and the co-founder of the Management Lab, where we help forward-thinking organizations become more resilient, innovative and engaging places to work.  You can learn more about our approach at www.humanocracy.com/consulting.

Before joining forces with Gary, I was  an Associate Partner at McKinsey & Company and a leader in the firm’s organization, strategy and financial services practices.  

I also spent five years as a policy analyst at the RAND Corporation, a public policy think tank.  My most memorable projects?  Conducting research in the mid-1990s on how terrorist and other insurgent groups were harnessing information-age technologies to operate as nimble networks.

Over the years, I've written a number of pieces on strategy and organization for the McKinsey Quarterly.  My writing and research have  been featured in the Harvard Business Review, the Financial Times, and Fortune.    

I also do some public speaking at conferences and other events.

I left Europe for the US back in 1994 to attend Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government, where I graduated with a Masters in Public Policy in 1996.  I then moved to Santa Monica, CA and earned a PhD in Policy Analysis from the Pardee RAND Graduate School.  

I currently live in the Boston area with my wife and three daughters.
