Nominations for Thinkers50 Ranking and Awards

Nominations are key to identifying new thinkers and new ideas.

Every two years, Thinkers50 publishes its much-anticipated ranking of management thinkers. In those years, we also host our Awards Gala, and Distinguished Achievement Awards are given in the categories we judge to be most important to management and business at that time.

Public participation is a major factor in identifying the thinkers who will appear on our bi-ennial ranking, and in identifying candidates to receive the Thinkers50 Distinguished Achievement Awards. Via our website, the public is encouraged to nominate the thinkers they believe are making significant contributions – the thinkers whose ideas are having impact, and even changing the world.

Nominations open in January of the years in which the Awards Gala is held – that is, in all odd-numbered years. We receive many thousands of nominations, and, along with our board, we pride ourselves on considering every one! We rely upon this process to bring new names and new ideas to our attention.

The next ranking and award cycle will begin in January of 2019.
