The world of management ideas is fast moving. Ideas emerge, change, and evolve. And now they do so on the global stage.


No business school, company, or region can claim to have a monopoly on management insights. Bright ideas to run organizations, inspire people, manage more efficiently, or light an entrepreneurial fire are as likely to emerge in Silicon Wadi as in Silicon Valley; Shenzhen as Chicago. Ideas are universal. And some ideas and some thinkers truly resonate.


Today, we are delighted to introduce our annual selection of 30 thinkers to watch in the coming year — the people whose work we have encountered in our physical and intellectual travels, and who have piqued our interest. We think you will be intrigued, inspired, and even guided by the ideas they have to share.


This is as powerful a group as we have ever identified in our annual selection — a broadly diverse group covering enormous ground — a dream team of researchers, advisers, entrepreneurs, and organizational leaders. They are the emerging thinkers to watch in 2019.
