Clayton Christensen: Thinkers50 Top Mind in Business

While we’ve already taken inspiration from Thinkers50 as an organization that shares the best management ideas in the world, we also know that there are quite a few inspirational individuals behind the group itself. To celebrate their great minds, Thinkers50 held an award gala last November and Clayton Christensen came out on top.

Known as an innovative thinker in management, Christensen’s breakthrough novel, The Innovator’s Dilemma discussed how companies should not just meet the immediate needs of their clients and employees, they also need to consider their future and unstated needs as well. Basically, he claims that looking after people and forming trusting, long-term relationships will get you ahead in the business world.

Since then, Christensen has continued to work as a professor at Harvard Business School and has published several other books, most recently, How Will You Measure Your Life? Finding Fulfilment Using Lessons from Some of the World’s Greatest Businesses.
