NEW DELHI, FEBRUARY 4: Joining the elite community of leading global management experts from LSE, Havard Business School, among others, Sameer Dua the entrepreneur and author from Pune has been named in the global list of 30 management thinkers who will shape the future of how organisations are managed and led by Thinkers50.

Delighted on the occasion, he said, “It is wonderful to join a truly global community that values business ideas that can improve the world around us. The list has experts from London School of Economics, Warwick Business School, Asper School of Business, Georgia Institute of Technology, Harvard Business School, Henley Business School, London Business School, Ashridge-Hult Business School, Saïd Business School, Oxford University and many other leading global experts.”

As a part of the biennial ranking of the 50 leading management thinkers, Thinkers50 publishes an annual list of 30 thinkers who will do most to shape the future. According to Thinkers50, this is a list of global emerging thinkers who have the potential to make lasting contributions to management theory and practice.

Sameer Dua is the founder of Institute for Generative Leadership (India) and a bestselling author. His book on the subject of ‘Declaring Breakdowns’ continues to be used as study material by several management and leadership institutes globally. His second book “Become: The Five Critical Conversational Practices that Shift ‘Who You Be’ as a Leader” became the number one book on Amazon in 5 different categories within the first 6 hours of launch.

He is one of the two only Indians to figure in this global list. The other being Leena Nair, the first female and youngest ever Chief HR Officer of Unilever.

Des Dearlove and Stuart Crainer, Founders, Thinkers50 said, “Some ideas and some thinkers resonate. This is the basis of our annual selection of 30 thinkers to watch in the coming year. These are the people whose work we have encountered in our physical and intellectual travels. These are the people who have piqued our interest.” They further added, “This is as powerful a group as we have ever identified in our annual selection. These 30 thinkers cover enormous ground – from AI to employee engagement, from cognitive diversity to immigration. The 30 are the most diverse group we have ever assembled, a dream team of researchers, advisers, entrepreneurs, and organizational leaders. They are the people to watch in 2019.”

The Thinkers50 Awards Gala that happens once every two years has been dubbed as “the Oscars of Management Thinking” by the Financial Times, UK.
