When it was launched in 2001, Thinkers 50 was the first-ever global ranking of management thinkers. It has been published every two years since. In the intervening decade, the scope of the T50 has broadened to include a range of activities that support its mission of identifying and sharing the best management thinking in the world.
That mission is based on three core beliefs: Ideas have the power to change the world. Management is essential to human affairs. New thinking can create a better future. A friend and mentor, Liz Wiseman, aligns well with T50's core beliefs. She has shared those ideas with many middle and senior management level leaders in the Navy over the past several years. She's taken her "Multipliers - How " seminar to the U.S. Navy Academy and the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California. I've distributed her book to dozens of senior leaders in the Information Warfare Community. Some of them have read it. The best of those have applied it in their Navy careers.
This year, Liz Wiseman won the Thinkers 50 Leadership Award. She's an amazing person.
