We are proud to announce that three faculty members of MIT Sloan Executive Education were recently named to the Thinkers50 list, the world's most prestigious ranking of management thinkers: Erik Bryjnolfsson, Professor of Information Technology and the Director of The MIT Center for Digital Business; Douglas Ready, Senior Lecturer; and Hal Gregersen, Senior Lecturer and the Executive Director of The MIT Leadership Center.
Brynjolfsson, along with his colleague Andrew McAfee, shared the Digital Thinking Award, which "celebrates the thinker who has done the most to transform the digital revolution into useful management insights." Brynjolfsson and McAfee authored The Second Machine Age: Work, Progress and Prosperity in a Time of Brilliant Technologies.
Ready, a faculty member whose research on aligning purpose, performance, and principles has led to the popular concept of implementing a company's Collective Ambition. He currently teaches in the two-day course, Building Game-Changing Organizations: Aligning Purpose, Performance, and People.
Gregersen explores how leaders in business, government, and society discover provocative new ideas, develop the human and organizational capacity to realize those ideas, and ultimately deliver powerful results. He is the co-author of The Innovator's DNA: Mastering the Five Skills of Disruptive Innovators, and teaches in The Innovator's DNA: Mastering Five Skills for Disruptive Innovation and the Advanced Management Program.
Congratulations to our faculty members--the honorees, nominees, and those who continually exemplify the leading-edge management thinking of which we are so proud here at MIT Sloan.
