The mission of the Tennenbaum Institute (TI) is to provide knowledge and skills for enterprise transformation – fundamental change of complex organizational systems. Our vision is 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.
TI was founded in 2004, enabled by the generosity of Georgia Tech alum Michael Tennenbaum. Our research and education addresses a rich mixture of concepts, principle, models, methods, and tools applicable to a wide range of enterprise domains. Two domains of particular emphasis at TI are healthcare delivery and global manufacturing. Our research and education in these two domains are enhanced by strong partnerships with leading companies and agencies in these domains, as well as thought leaders from many organizations.
