Edgar H. Schein (born 1928), a professor at the MIT Sloan School of Management has had a notable mark on the field of organizational development in many areas, including career development, group process consultation, and organizational culture. He is generally credited with inventing the term corporate culture.

Schein (2004) identifies three distinct levels in organizational cultures; artifacts and behaviours, espoused values, and assumptions.

Schein has written on the issues surrounding coercive persuasion, comparing and contrasting brainwashing as a use for "goals that we deplore and goals that we accept."[1]

    The issue is similar to that faced by parents of children who have joined cults that have used coercive persuasion. Are the parents in turn justified in kidnapping their child out of the cult and using a deprogrammer to coercively persuade them back to a set of values that the parents are more comfortable with?
