Michael E. Porter is the Bishop William Lawrence University Professor at Harvard Business School. A leading authority on company strategy and the competitiveness of nations and regions, his work is widely recognized in governments, corporations, non-profits and academic circles across the globe. A six-time winner of the McKinsey Award for the best Harvard Business Review article of the year, Professor Porter is one of the most cited authors in business and economics. He first published in HBR in 1979 with "How Competitive Forces Shape Strategy," which gave rise to his now-famous "Five Forces" framework.

Professor Porter's core field is competition and company strategy, and this remains the focus of his research. His work has also redefined thinking about competitiveness, economic development, economically distressed urban communities, environmental policy, and the role of corporations in society. He is the author of 18 books and numerous articles.

Recently, Professor Porter has devoted considerable attention to understanding and addressing the pressing problems in health care in the United States and other countries. His book, Redefining Health Care (2006, with Professor Elizabeth Teisberg), develops a new strategic framework for transforming the value delivered by the health care system, with implications for providers, health plans, employers, and government, among other actors. His New England Journal of Medicine research article, "A Strategy for Health Care Reform-Toward a Value-Based System," laid out a health reform strategy for the U.S.
