50 Most influential Management Thinkers


 

Who is the world’s most influential living management thinker?
That was the simple question that inspired the original Thinkers 50 in
2001. The result was the first ever global ranking of business gurus.
The all-new Thinkers 50 2007 (www.thinkers50.com) is the most
comprehensive and fascinating ranking yet.
Produced by Suntop Media, in association with Skillsoft, it is the
definitive bi-annual guide to which thinkers and ideas are in – and
which are past their corporate sell by date.
So what do the 2007 rankings show? Who are the most influential
management thinkers in an increasingly global business world? And
who, among them, is the number one?
In 2005, Harvard heavyweight Michael Porter inherited the crown
from the late great Peter Drucker. But would he keep his place at the
top in this year’s Thinkers 50? Now we know.
THE GURU AT THE TOP OF THE PYRAMID
The most influential living management guru in the world is CK
Prahalad. Prahalad is the first Indian-born thinker to claim the title.
Best known for his work with Gary Hamel (ranked 5th) on resourcebased
strategy, which gave rise to the term core competences, more
recently, Prahalad has turned his attention to the plight of the world’s
poor. In The Bottom of the Pyramid, his 2004 book, he argues that
capitalism can be the engine to eradicate poverty.
