Charles Hampden-Turner (1934) is a British management philosopher, and Research Associate at Cambridge since 1990. He is the creator of Dilemma Theory, and co-founder and Director of Research and Development at the Trompenaars-Hampden-Turner Group, in Amsterdam. He grew up in Cambridge and was educated at Wellington College, a military public school attended by his father. On finishing military service, he attended Trinity College, to read Social History, For Tripos II, he read Law. Politically, he was a keen debater. He applied at the Harvard Business School and inn his second year he discovered a talent for Organisational Behaviour, starting a lifelong interest. He joined the faculty as a research associate in the Department of Organisational Behaviour. He published his Doctoral Thesis as 'Radical Man' in 1969. He joined an inter-disciplinary program on graduation focusing with a group of Black Community organizers. This work on human rights continued, until President of Harvard indicated he was keen to restrain scholars from working on social problems, saying "Scholars should not involve themselves in the nation's slums and ghettoes." Hampden-Turner disagreed, and moved on. He joined a radical think tank,The Cambridge Institute, founded by historian Gar Alperowitz and sociologist Christopher Jencks, staffed largely with Harvard and MIT members. The group avoided fashionable socialist and Marxist views, preferring a free-thinking approach in search of new social solutions. For three years, Hampden-Turner worked in ghettoes, and poor rural communities, from the Bedford-Stuyvesant Corporation in New York, to Eskimo reindeer herding in Alaska and getting in the watermelon harvest in Southwest Georgia, developing social and intellectual policy solutions.
