Art Kleiner Archive

The Art Kleiner Archive is 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.

The collection consists of original publications and correspondence between prominent scenario planners as well as annotated drafts of Kleiner’s work, amassed during the writing of The Age of Heretics (1996) and The Fifth Discipline Fieldbook (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 Pierre Wack Memorial Library and Boucher Futures Research Library.

Kleiner’s other distinguished publications include Who Really Matters: The Core Group Theory of Power, Privilege, and Success (2003), The Dance of Change (1999) and Schools That Learn (2000). From 2005-2020, he served as Editor-in-Chief of strategy+business magazine.

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