Jeffrey Pfeffer

Thomas D. Dee II Professor of Organizational Behavior at the Graduate School of Business, Stanford University, where I have taught since 1979.

I have taught at Stanford's business school, U. of California, Berkeley, and U. of Illinois. Have written 15 books, the most recent, Dying for a Paycheck, scheduled to be published in 2018, and have taught seminars in 39 countries around the world. I have served on the boards of several human capital software companies as well as other public and private company boards and the board of the San Francisco Playhouse as well. My research interests are in power and influence, human resource management, the knowing-doing gap, evidence-based management, and the effects of workplaces on people's health.
