Jeanne Wilson received her Ph.D. in Organizational Behavior/Theory from Carnegie Mellon University. Her research focuses on new organizational forms, particularly distributed work groups. She just finished a year-long longitudinal study of the development of trust, cooperation and performance in co-located and distributed teams at a multinational bank. She is also involved in ongoing studies of knowledge transfer in teams that cross organizational boundaries, attributions about performance in international project teams, and the development of shared mental models in software development teams. This work is supported by grants from the CitiGroup Behavioral Science Research Council, the Carnegie Bosch Institute and the National Science Foundation. Prior to returning to pursue a Ph.D., Jeanne spent thirteen years in consulting, including a stint as a vice president for organizational change consulting. Her clients included Saturn, Unisys, Subaru-Isuzu, Becton-Dickinson, International Paper and GenCorp. During this time, Jeanne published four books for practicing managers, two of which were business best sellers.
