Tiha von Ghyczy

Strategy Consultant
Tiha was instrumental in the formation of BrightSpec. As a advisor to the company, Tiha combines his expertise in strategy with his early love of and training in mathematics. His career spanned operating roles at a Swiss-based group operating plantations in Indonesia, a long career with the Boston Consulting Group (BCG) in Munich as partner and Vice President, co-owner of an Argentine management consulting firm and administrative director of an archaeological project in Belize before he joined the faculty of the Darden School of Business at the University of Virginia in 1996. At Darden he teaches strategy and serves as director of business projects. As founding fellow of BCG's Strategy Institute, he forged links between the world of business and several scientific disciplines and research institutions (Max Planck Institute, Santa Fe Institute among others). Tiha co-authored Clausewitz on Strategy (John Wiley & Sons 2001), The fruitful flaws of strategy metaphors (Harvard Business Review, September 2003) and In praise of feedership (Harvard Business Review, February 2005). He is currently working on two books for Hanser Verlag (publisher in Germany): one tackling the causes of "grand failure," the other exploring the role of spatial thought in strategy. He has degrees in Mathematics and Philosophy from the University of Amsterdam and an MBA from IMEDE (now IMD) in Lausanne.

Tiha considers his engagement with business a matter of chance and his study of mathematics and philosophy one of choice. "I have always felt," he explains, "that The Boston Consulting Group is the reason I could stay involved in business for such a long time. At BCG, there is room for divergent thinking and searching for new ideas in unusual places. It is an intellectual journey rather than simply work."
Tiha has been a fellow of the Strategy Institute since 1998, and he teaches strategy at the Darden School of Business of the University of Virginia. He studied philosophy and mathematics at the University of Amsterdam and earned his M.B.A. from IMEDE (now IMD), in Lausanne, Switzerland.
He served as financial controller of a group of plantations in Indonesia and as managing director of a trading company in Singapore before joining BCG in 1980 as a consultant in Munich. As a partner, Tiha was responsible for recruiting in Germany and was among the early promoters of time-based competition. After leaving BCG in 1991, he cofounded a consulting firm in Buenos Aires. Before joining Darden in 1996, he served as the administrative director of a major archaeology project in Belize.
