Deep Smarts by Dorothy Leonard, Walter C. Swap Dorothy Leonard, the William J. Abernathy Professor of Business Administration, joined the Harvard faculty in 1983 after teaching for three years at the Sloan School of Management at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. She has taught MBA courses in managerial leadership, manufacturing, strategic capabilities, new product and process development, technology strategy and technology implementation. At Harvard, M.I.T., Stanford, and for corporations such as Kodak, AT&T, and Johnson & Johnson, she has conducted executive courses on a wide range of innovation-related topics such as designing work groups, structuring new product development and technology transfer during new product and process development.
