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.
