Art Kleiner Archive

The Art Kleiner Archive Catalogue describes the contents of a collection of letters, reports and other documents which was donated by renowned author, journalist, and editorial consultant Art Kleiner, to Green Templeton College, and deposited in the Oxford Futures Library at Egrove Park, University of Oxford.

The collection consists of original publications and correspondence between prominent scenario planners as well as annotated drafts of Kleiner’s work, amassed by Kleiner in the writing of The Age of Heretics (Doubleday/Nicholas Brealey, 1996), and The Fifth Discipline Fieldbook (Doubleday/Nicholas Brealey, 1994) which Kleiner developed with Peter Senge and others. Many of the items within this collection directly reference Pierre Wack, Shell and scenario planning, and as such, provide a valuable complement to the Boucher Futures Research Library and Pierre Wack Memorial Library.

Kleiner’s other distinguished publications include Who Really Matters: The Core Group Theory of Power, Privilege, and Success (Doubleday/Nicholas Brealey, 2003), The Dance of Change (Doubleday, 1999) and Schools that Learn (Doubleday, 2000). Since 2005 Kleiner served as the Editor-in-Chief of strategy+business magazine, to which he also contributes regular columns.

Green Templeton College and the Saïd Business School are grateful for the generous donation of this distinct archive.
