Every 2 years Thinkers50 review and rank the top management thinkers across the world. Previous winners have included CK Prahalad, Peter Drucker and Michael Porter.
There has been a lot of voting so far and you still have time to nominate who you think should win the overall award at www.thinkers50.com. I have noticed that as well as the expected candidates like Malcolm Gladwell, Michael Porter and Tom Peters, there have been some new faces making waves like Umair Haque and Lucy Marcus. I particularly like Umair’s thoughts on thin and thick profit in organisations – recognising the shift in how companies should operate and acknowledge their impact on culture, the environment and communities.
