JoAnne Yates

Sloan School of Management, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Sloan Distinguished Professor of Managment

    JoAnne Yates is the Sloan Distinguished Professor of Management and a Professor of Managerial Communication and Work and Organization Studies at the MIT Sloan School of Management. Her most recent single-authored historical book, Structuring the Information Age: Life Insurance and Technology in the Twentieth Century, provides insight into the largely unexplored evolution of information processing in the commercial sector and the underrated influence of corporate users in shaping the history of modern technologies. She is currently collaborating with her husband, Craig N. Murphy, professor of political science at Wellesley College, on a study of the history of voluntary consensus standard setting. An initial short book has already emerged out of that project--Craig N. Murphy and JoAnne Yates, The International Organization for Standardization (IS0): Global governance through voluntary consensus (London: Routledge Press, 2009)--and another, longer scholarly book is in process.
