Prahalad Named World's Most Influential Management Guru

CK Prahalad has been named the world's most influential living management guru. The Times Online has published The Thinkers 50, their biennial poll of the world's top 50 business thinkers. Prahalad is most recently known (along with Stuart Hart) for co-developing base of the pyramid strategies in their seminal 2002 article and for his best-selling book on the topic.

Of note on this year's list:

  • Bill Gates is #2 on the list
  • Alan Greenspan is #3 on the list
  • Michael Porter, strategist, dropped to #4
  • strategists are on the rise, capturing ten of the top 50 slots and accounting for four of the top ten
  • there is also a rise of Indian thinkers
  • Al Gore is #41 on the list
  • there are only three women in the top 50, down from four last time
