Welcome.

Hi, I'm Chris Labash. Thank you for visiting my website.

I help people think better, create better, and communicate better.

My research and teaching interests -- as well as my work experience -- lie at the intersection of strategy, innovation, and communication, which are the subjects that I teach at Carnegie Mellon University's Heinz College.

The Heinz College houses eleven top-ranked graduate programs offered in our School of Information Systems Management and School of Public Policy & Management. I've been teaching here since 2003, but most of my background is "real-world."  For many years I was Executive Creative Director of the Headquarters Office of Ketchum Advertising, then the 15th largest ad agency in the world. I've been Vice President of Global Marketing at Development Dimensions International, one of the world's largest training and assessment companies.  And I've been a management consultant, a serial entrepreneur, a radio dj, a lumberjack, a skydiver, and a dad.

This site will give you an idea of my thinking, teaching, and research. More important, the tools and information here can help you be a better strategist, innovator, and communicator. Because mostly what I want to do is help you change the world.
