News & Opinion: The Thinkers50
Business Book Readers will know Marshall from his excellent and highly influential books, most recently What Got You Here Won't Get You There and MOJO. Friends and followers of the company might remember him from the LeaveSmarter event we held with him here in Milwaukee last year (you can find a video excerpt from that event at the end of this post).
And there are other categories and awards in the Thinkers50 as well, including the Thinkers50 Book Award, which Pankaj Ghemawat won for his new book World 3.0: Global Prosperity and How to Achieve It, in which he rejects "flat world" view of the global economy and offer a more nuanced, semi-globalized view.
Other Think50 2011 category winners include:
- Blue Ocean Strategy coauthors W. Chan Kim & Renée Mauborgne in Strategy
- Vijay Govindarajan, author of Ten Rules for Strategic Innovators and The Other Side of Innovation, took the Breakthrough Idea Award
- Lucy P Marcus took home the Future Thinker Award
- Nirmalya Kumar, author of India Inside, won the Global Village Award
