Summary "The Thinkers 50, the list after which the book is named, is an international ranking of business thought leaders - 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 on a global scale." "Each profile includes information on the subject's background and primary contributions, and lists key publications and Web sites. Collectively, these individuals reflect the state of the art in contemporary management thinking and its application, separating the people and ideas with lasting impact from the passing fads. From students to entrepreneurs to seasoned executives, The Thinkers 50 provides a compendium of practical insight on the art and science of management."--BOOK JACKET
