Sheen S Levine
University of Texas at Dallas

Sheen S. Levine studies how people behave and how they impact others, organizations and markets. His research spans disciplines: How knowledge sharing affects performance, when open collaboration facilitates innovation, and how strategic intelligence enhances performance. He currently studies why diversity improves error detection and when decision makers opt for the familiar versus the promising. He has led research teams to publications in journals such as Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Organization Science, and Strategic Management Journal. Top executives in organizations such as BlackRock and The City of New York said Levine’s research changed the way they manage. The findings have been reported by The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Reuters, Forbes, Bloomberg, BusinessWeek, and others. They have been cited by scholars in business, sociology, psychology, economics, law, and computer science. Levine, who earned his doctorate at the Wharton School (University of Pennsylvania), is a special issue co-editor of Organization Science and deputy editor-in-chief of Management and Organization Review. He taught global strategic management, organizational theory, entrepreneurship and innovation to students and executives in the US, Europe and Asia. He is an op-ed contributor to the New York Times and engages tens of thousands on social media.
