Hi. I'm Don Schmincke

How did I end up researching management theory failure rates, and transforming how strategic planning and culture change occurred?

No idea. As an MIT and Johns Hopkins researcher, I was nearly arrested as a capitalist spy in the Soviet Bloc, got shot off an aircraft carrier, survived in the Kurdish capital as Tehran held hostages, was the first white person allowed into an African Tsonga village, explored religious integration in Vietnamese mountain tribes, developed missile-guidance systems while my frat brothers took Vegas (later portrayed in the movie “21”), and was caught taking my kids to a North Korean DMZ minefield. (Bad dad!)

But my background in planetary physics, AI,  biomedical engineering, and many global expeditions provided a unique foundation for discovering how humans group for work, play, reproduction, civilization, and war. And my partnering with Lou Tice's early research for The Pacific Institute just catapulted it a new levels!
