Terri Griffith (BA, UC Berkeley; MS, Ph.D., Carnegie Mellon University), is Associate Dean of the Leavey School of Business at Santa Clara University.

She is an expert on how you make combined technology and organization decisions and then work these changes into your organization. These ideas are outlined in her award-winning book, The Plugged-In Manager: Get in Tune with Your People, Technology, and Organization to Thrive. She is also one of the 100 honored members of the 2012 Silicon Valley Women of Influence. Prof. Griffith reaches a broad audience through her speaking, workshops, and writing. She is a regular contributor to her own blog, Technology and Organizations, and has written for the Wall Street Journal, The Harvard Business Review Blog, and GigaOM's WebWorkerDaily. The research behind these efforts is published in journals such as: Organization Science, Information Systems Research, MIS Quarterly, Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, and the Academy of Management Review. Some of this work has been funded by the National Science Foundation.

Before coming to Santa Clara University, Professor Griffith was on the faculties of Washington University, St. Louis and the University of Arizona. She has also held visiting positions at UC Berkeley; Purdue University; Northwestern University; the Melbourne School of Business; and the Sasin Graduate Institute of Business Administration in Bangkok, Thailand. Other international experience includes a United States Information Agency funded "train the trainer" program in Bulgaria where she and other faculty presented U.S. business education topics and techniques.

She is a member of the Academy of Management, the Association for Information Systems, and INFORMS. She is an editorial board member of IEEE Transactions on Engineering Management and Group Decision and Negotiation, past senior editor for Organization Science, as well as a past associate editor for MIS Quarterly. For several years she was the convener of the Organization Science Winter Conference, an annual "think tank" event which draws academics as well as senior executives.
