Werner Erhard speaks at Harvard University Kennedy School Center For Public Leadership on December 14, 2009 on: "Why We Do What We Do: A New Model Providing Actionable Access to the Source of Performance."

Werner Erhard's work has become an important resource for academic institutions and a catalyst for creative thinking and teaching in both the academic and corporate environments. Werner Erhard's work has been noted as a key element in current management thinking and the science of productivity and performance.

Now more than forty years since Werner Erhard introduced the breakthrough notion of “transformation” to the American public, Erhard spends most of his time with academic colleagues, all of whom are committed to rigorous academic examination of the ideas through writing and lecturing.

Quotes from the November 2015 New York Times article about Werner Erhard:

"For several years before his latest professional reincarnation, Mr. Erhard consulted for businesses and government agencies like the Russian adult-education program the Znaniye Society and a nonprofit organization supporting clergy in Ireland.

"Enter the Harvard economist Michael Jensen. Dr. Jensen, who is famous in financial circles for championing the concepts of shareholder value and executive stock options, had taken a Landmark course in Boston at the suggestion of his daughter, who mended a rocky relationship with Dr. Jensen after taking the course herself.

“I became convinced we should work to get this kind of transformational material into the academies,” he said, adding that he considers Mr. Erhard “one of the great intellectuals of the century.”
