BUSINESS GURUS SHORTLISTED FOR OSCARS OF MANAGEMENT THINKING
LONDON – Thinkers50, the premier ranking of global business thinkers, today announced the shortlisted nominees for this year’s Distinguished Achievement Awards, which have been described as the “Oscars of management thinking.”
Awards will be made in nine categories: Innovation; Digital Thinking; Strategy; Ideas into Practice; Leadership; Talent; the CK Prahalad Breakthrough Idea Award (named after the innovative business thinker who twice topped the Thinkers50 ranking); the Radar Award for the thinker most likely to shape the future; and the Lifetime Achievement Award.
“Thinkers50 is a celebration of the very best new management thinking as well as those ideas which stand the test of time,” says Des Dearlove, who, with Stuart Crainer, created Thinkers50 in 2001. “We are looking for ideas with a potential impact that extends beyond the business world to address issues ranging from social inclusion to building a sustainable model of capitalism.”
