THE BRIGHTLINE INITIATIVE AND THINKERS50 ANNOUNCE PARTNERSHIP
LONDON: Thinkers50, the premier ranking of global business thinkers (www.thinkers50.com) and The Brightline™ Initiative (www.brightline.org) today announced a new partnership. Brightline will be the leading partner for the Thinkers50 2017 Gala event on 13 November in London and the two will work together on future content creation projects.
“Thinkers50 is passionate about ideas and how they can change the world of business and beyond,” says Thinkers50 cofounder Stuart Crainer. “With its focus on how ideas are turned into reality, Brightline is a perfect fit with the Thinkers50 mission. We will be collaborating on a new book project and our podcast series, as well as at our Thinkers50 2017 Gala, where we announce the new ranking of management thinkers and the winners of Thinkers50 Distinguished Achievement Awards. We look forward to a productive and interesting partnership.”
Launched early in 2017, The Brightline Initiative is a coalition founded by Agile Alliance, The Boston Consulting Group (BCG), and the Project Management Institute (PMI). Its objective is to become the leading authority on strategic initiative management with the aim of helping enterprises reduce the failure rate of large-scale strategic initiatives and avoid the resulting loss of competitive advantage and destruction of value.
Brightline executive director Ricardo Vargas says, “Thinkers50 celebrates and convenes the very best in management thinking. Our partnership will give us access to some of the best thinkers in the fields of strategy and executing on strategy. We look forward to making a difference in ensuring that ideas become value-creating action.”
