We are delighted to announce that Linda has won the Thinkers50 Innovation Award. In describing the award, the Thinkers50 team noted:
If necessity is the mother of invention, then innovation is its nurturing father. The word innovate comes from the Latin to “make new.” The need for innovation has never been more pressing—in society as well as in organizations. The T50 Innovation Award recognizes the thinker who has contributed the most to our understanding of innovation in every sphere over the last two years. Previous winners include Navi Radjou and Clay Christensen.
The entire Collective Genius team is honored to receive this recognition, which has only been awarded three times.
In addition, Linda’s personal ranking climbed to #6, acknowledging her tremendous contributions to the fields of leadership, innovation and management, on the list billed as the “essential guide to which thinkers and which ideas matter now.” In their press release, Thinkers50 wrote:
Who is the most influential living management thinker? The Thinkers50 2015 global ranking provides the answer. Published every two years, it is the essential guide to which business thinkers and ideas are in – and which have been consigned to business history. The 2015 Thinkers50 ranking was unveiled tonight at the “Oscars of Management Thinking” awards at Drapers’ Hall in the City of London.
