Marvin Weisbord is co-director of the non-profit Future Search Network (FSN), which he founded with Sandra Janoff in 1993 to engage consultants and local leaders in voluntary social change. The Network has members on every continent, collaborating to help people improve their lives in the arts, business, communities, education, environment, health care, social services, technology, and other sectors. Weisbord is author of the widely-used text Productive Workplaces (3rd edition, Jossey-Bass/John Wiley 2012).

He also is Distinguished Visiting Fellow, Ashridge Business School, Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, UK, a fellow of the World Academy of Productivity Science and a resource faculty member in the Organization and Systems Renewal Program at Seattle University.

The Organizational Dynamics graduate studies program at the University of Pennsylvania, in collaboration with other universities, professional societies and education groups, has established the Marvin Weisbord Archive: A Living History of Productive Workplaces in his honor. The Archive contains online videos of thought leaders, projects, and educational material spanning more than five decades.
