Every two years, Thinkers50 salutes the leading business and management ideas of our age with our Ranking of Management Thinkers and our awards for distinguished achievement in a number of specific management categories. Our annual Radar list introduces emerging thinkers with the potential to make lasting contributions to management theory and practice.


Thinkers50 Ranking

The Thinkers50 global ranking of management thinkers is announced each odd-numbered year.


Thinkers50 Awards

Distinguished Achievement Awards are conferred in key areas of management every two years.


Thinkers50 Radar

A new class of up-and-coming Radar thinkers is identified annually.


About Us

2001: Two maverick Englishmen disrupt business and management with the first ever ranking of management thinkers. Quickly recognized globally as the premier work of its kind, the Thinkers50 Ranking has been published every two years since.

2011: Thinkers50 introduces Distinguished Achievement Awards, expanding its biennial salute to the leading business and management ideas of our age.

2021: The next Thinkers50 Gala will be held at London’s Guildhall on Tuesday 16 November 2021, featuring announcement of our 11th biennial ranking of management thinkers. Save the date!
