Since retiring from McKinsey in 2006, he has consulted with a wide variety of companies, universities, and non-profits on issues of Board governance, strategy, the changing environment for higher education, and other subjects. In 2007, he taught at the Harvard Business School, and has been a Senior Teaching Professor at Emory University’s Goizueta Business School since 2008.
