B. Joseph Pine II's profile Once upon a time in a career far away, Joe Pine worked for IBM in Rochester, Minnesota. For the launch of the AS/400 computer system he created a group that brought customers and business partners into the actual development process. Because of this innovative activity, customer needs were met more exactly and quality was significantly enhanced factors that contributed greatly to IBM winning the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award in 1990.

One of the lessons that Joe learned during this time was that every one of these customers was unique. After moving into strategic planning, this insight led him to read Stan Davis seminal book Future Perfect. When Joe read the chapter on mass customizing, he had an epiphany that led to placing the idea of efficiently serving customers uniquely into IBMs vision and strategy. It also led to the Management of Technology Program at MITs Sloan School of Management where he focused his masters thesis on this subject and became determined to turn it into a book after graduation.

Two years later, in late 1992, Mass Customization: The New Frontier in Business Competition was published by Harvard Business School Press. About six months after that Joe received a letter in the mail from a guy named Jim Gilmore with CSC Cleveland Consulting Associates, who said his reaction upon discovering the book was Oh shoot someone else has already written it! They immediately struck up a friendship, which lead to CSC becoming Joes best client when he later left IBM to work independently.

Their collaboration resulted in, first, some great work guiding CSC clients; second, a Harvard Business Review article, Joes third, on The Four Faces of Mass Customization; and third, discovering and delineating the emerging Experience Economy. (Joe can still remember the instigation of the latter: an executive education session where, in response to a question, he uttered the phrase Mass customizing a service automatically turns it into an experience! A new-to-the-world idea was born.) More important than any one idea, however, was the creation of a different kind of firm, Strategic Horizons LLP, whose raison detre would be to discover what was going on in the business world, make sense of it, and then develop frameworks so that companies could intelligently respond to the fundamental changes happening in the competitive environment.

Such discoveries do not happen by accident. They result from voluminous reading, wide-ranging real-world experiences, a talent for pattern recognition, and the ability to conceptualize what one sees into meaningful models for action. Indeed, Joe likes to say that they shouldve named the company Frameworks R Us. Most evenings youll find him pursuing the first step reading one of three daily newspapers, a periodical or two from the 40+ to which he subscribes, or one of scores of books he gets through every year.

When hes not writing, that is. Joe describes that as his first (vocational) love, taking fingers to keyboard in order to vigorously wrestle with the ideas, first, and only then to describe them to others. Joe further sharpens these ideas and frameworks in the speeches, workshops, executive education sessions, and ongoing consulting he performs with Fortune 500 and entrepreneurial start-ups alike. While a seasoned stand-up speaker who knows both how to keep an audience entertained and how to impart actionable ideas and frameworks that listeners can use to change their companies, Joe also loves small, intimate gatherings where other people become full participants in coming to grips with the ideas, corralling the frameworks to their own use, and committing to a course of action that benefits their customers, and therefore their businesses.

Thats why he loves teaching so much. Joe started out teaching at the IBM Advanced Business Institute in his last assignment there, and has also taught at Penn State, UCLA, the University of Minnesota, Iowa State, and back at MIT, among others. A few years ago the University of Amsterdam asked him to become a visiting professor, enabling Joe to establish a beachhead, of sorts, in the European theatre where he further co-founded the European Centre for the Experience Economy for ongoing research and educational opportunities.

When not on the road, Joe spends as much time as possible with his wife, Julie, and two daughters, Rebecca and Elizabeth, while also frequently playing such sports as golf, basketball, and table tennis, and regularly watching his beloved New York Yankees, Los Angeles Lakers, and Green Bay Packers (he moved around a lot as a kid). He works out of a home office with wall-to-wall bookcases, CD racks filled with classical and jazz music, and a cup warmer for his ever-present tea (Starbucks Tazo Chai preferred).

When a client calls, however, Joes always ready to go. His motto: Have audience, will perform.
