I just learned of Thinkers50, a web site listing the Top 50 Business Thinkers in the world. The list is published every other year with the most recent in 2011.
The Top 5 from the latest list:
- Clayton Christensen
- W. Chan Kim & Renée Mauborgne
- Vijay Govindarajan
- Jim Collins
- Michael Porter
I confess, among these five I had only heard of Collins. Further down the list are some names that might be more familiar: Malcolm Gladwell, Seth Godin, Tom Peters, Daniel Pink, John Kotter, Stephen Covey.
For the full list with links to each individual’s bio, click here. You’ll find some fascinating work!
