Conference Honors Former Dean, Alum


Former Haas Dean Raymond Miles and co-author Charles Snow, Ph.D. 72, were honored at a conference held in December in Great Britain to mark the 30th anniversary of their seminal management book, Organizational Strategy, Structure, and Process.

The conference, titled “Organizational Strategy, Structure, and Process: A Reflection on the Research Perspective of Miles and Snow,” was organized by Cardiff University and was held from Dec. 3 to Dec. 5.

Miles is a Haas School professor emeritus who served as dean from 1983 to 1991. Snow is a Mellon Foundation faculty fellow at Penn State’s Smeal College of Business who studied under Miles while earning his Ph.D.

Originally published in 1978 and reissued by Stanford University Press for its 25th anniversary in 2003, Organizational Strategy, Structure, and Process bridged the fields of strategic management and organizational behavior. The book has been cited in more than 1,100 scholarly works, has been translated into both Japanese and German, and is used widely in classrooms around the world.
