Rosabeth Moss Kanter (born 1943) is a tenured professor in business at Harvard Business School, where she holds the Ernest L. Arbuckle Professorship. In the 2007-2008 Academic school year, she taught a course to MBA students entitled Managing Change.
A 1967 Ph.D graduate of the University of Michigan, she has written numerous books on business management techniques, particularly change management. She also has a regular column in the Miami Herald. She is known for her classic 1977 study of tokenism - how being a minority in a group can affect one's performance due to enhanced visibility and performance pressure. Her study of men and women of the corporation also became a classic in critical management studies and bureaucracy analysis. Kanter was #11 in a 2000s survey of Top 50 Business Intellectuals by citation in several sources.
