    LeadershipDecision MakingAuthors

    Dr. Peter Facione is a principal at Measured Reasons LLC, a Los Angeles-based research and consulting firm supporting excellence in strategic thinking and leadership decision making.

    In private business, Dr. Facione has worked as a strategic consultant with Stratus-Heery International and as managing partner of the California Academic Press. In academia, he served as Provost of Loyola University Chicago, Dean of College Arts and Sciences of Santa Clara University and as Dean of the School of Human Development and Community Service at California State University Fullerton.

    Dr. Facione's consulting work has included long-term and short-term projects for several branches of the US military, various NGOs and government agencies, professional associations, national labs, and over sixty public and private universities and colleges throughout the US and around the world.

    His latest book, THINK_Critically, was published by Pearson Education in January 2010. He co-authored the book, Thinking and Reasoning in Human Decision Making, with Dr. Noreen Facione in 2007, which addresses human decision making in contexts of risk and uncertainty, offering a cross-disciplinary method for the integrated analysis, evaluation and explanation. Their 2008 book, Critical Thinking and Clinical Reasoning in the Health Sciences, is an international teaching anthology.

    Dr. Facione maintains an active speaking, writing, consulting and research agenda, with well over 150 publications including essays, books, articles, case studies, and educational testing tools. His tools for assessing reasoning are used around the world. These include the California Critical Thinking Skills Test, the California Critical Thinking Disposition Inventory, the Health Sciences Reasoning Test, the Business Critical Thinking Skills Test, the California Measure of Mental Motivation, the Legal Studies Reasoning Profile, the Military & Defense Critical Thinking Inventory, the Professional Judgment Rating Form, and the Holistic Critical Thinking Scoring Rubric.

    He is frequently invited to present workshops or keynote at corporate and academic, national and international conferences. In addition to being called on for senior leadership coaching and collaborative strategic thinking, he assists with organizational planning, outcomes assessment, and program development.

    Dr. Facione is internationally known for his work on the definition of critical thinking and the measurement of its core skills and habits of mind. He was the lead investigator on an international research project which articulated a cross-disciplinary expert consensus regarding the skills and habits of mind that constitute college level critical thinking. That research, which was sponsored by the American Philosophical Association, has formed the basis for numerous academic replication studies and government policy studies about critical thinking in the workplace, including research sponsored by the US Department of Education.

    He earned his Ph.D. in Philosophy in 1971, his M.A. in Philosophy in 1967 from Michigan State University and his B.A. in Philosophy from Sacred Heart College in Detroit in 1966. His faculty work included teaching at Loyola University Chicago, Santa Clara, Cal State Fullerton, Bowling Green State, Michigan State and the University of Detroit. In 2005 he was a visiting professor at the University of Singapore and in 2006 at Mahidol University in Bangkok.
