Lectures and Presentations

Werner Erhard has been creating transformational models and applications for individuals and organizations for over 40 years. He has spent his life on a quest to discover the nature and function of being for human beings. For the last decade, Werner Erhard has been writing and lecturing almost exclusively in the academic world.

Werner Erhard is largely self-educated, albeit with tutoring from some important thinkers of his time – Richard Feynman, Michel Foucault, Humberto Maturana, Sir Karl Popper, and Hilary Putnam, to name a few. Currently Erhard collaborates with, among others, the highly regarded scholar Michael C. Jensen, the Jesse Isidor Strauss Professor of Business Emeritus at Harvard Business School.

Since 1974, Werner Erhard has been lecturing and leading courses at Universities throughout the world including the University of Munich, Simon School of Business at Rochester University, Harvard Law School, Erasmus Academie, University of Southern California, MIT’s Sloan School of Management, Millstein Center for Corporate Governance at Yale University, Depaul University and the John F. Kennedy Center for Public Leadership.
