Description: Here it is: Six Pixels of Separation – Episode #743 – Host: Mitch Joel. It’s hard to imagine a more recognized business thinker than Gary Hamel. He is, without question, one of the world’s most influential and iconoclastic business thinkers. He has worked with leading companies across the globe, and is a dynamic and sought-after management speaker. Hamel has been on the faculty of the London Business School for more than 30 years, and is the director of the Management Lab. He has written 17 articles for the Harvard Business Review, and is the most reprinted author in the Review’s history. His landmark books have been translated into more than 25 languages. His most recent include: The Future of Management and What Matters Now. Gary has been ranked by The Wall Street Journal as the world’s most influential business thinker, and is a fellow of the Strategic Management Society and of the World Economic Forum. If you’ve heard of concepts like “strategic intent,” “core competence,” “industry revolution,” and “management innovation,” this is the the language and practice of management that Gary invented. HIs latest book is, Humanocracy – Creating Organizations As Amazing As The People Inside Them (along with co-author, Michele Zanini). Enjoy the conversation…
