From the Publisher
"Based on a recent international survey, Parker presents a collection of brief profiles of scholars, educators, consultants, executives, economists, and social scientists, whose ideas set the agenda for management theory and practice, and whose actions and recommendations influence commerce worldwide. The ranking is based on input from visitors to the Thinkers 50 website, and through e-mails from the Thinkers 50 team to hundreds of business people, consultants, academics, and MBA students throughout the world. Organized alphabetically, each of the entries features a concise description of the individual's background, key contributions to his/her area of specialization, and a list of resources for further reading."
