The mission of the Tennenbaum Institute (TI) is to provide knowledge and skills for enterprise transformation – fundamental change of complex organizational systems. We are an interdisciplinary research organization that leverages the wealth of expertise and enthusiasm across Georgia Tech’s colleges and schools, as well as partner institutions, to understand and enable fundamental change of private and public sector enterprises via fundamental and applied research, as well as graduate and executive education.
Our research and education addresses a rich mixture of concepts, principles, models, methods, and tools applicable to a wide range of enterprise domains. Two domains of particular emphasis are healthcare delivery and global manufacturing. Our work in these two domains is enhanced by strong partnerships with leading companies and agencies, as well as thought leaders from many organizations. We believe that this diversity is our greatest strength in addressing the complex organizational problems the world faces today.
The Tennenbaum Institute was founded in 2004, enabled by the generosity of Georgia Tech alumnus, Michael Tennenbaum.
