The Wall Street Journal recently ranked Gary Hamel as the world’s most influential business thinker, and Fortune magazine has called him "the world’s leading expert on business strategy". Hamel’s landmark books, which have been translated into more than 20 languages, include Competing for the Future, Leading the Revolution, and The Future of Management (selected by Amazon.com as the best business book of the year). His latest book is What Matters Now.
Over the past twenty years, Hamel has authored 17 articles for the Harvard Business Review and is the most reprinted author in the Review’s history. He has also written for the Wall Street Journal, Fortune, The Financial Times and many other leading publications around the world. Hamel has been on the faculty of the London Business School, where he is currently Visiting Professor of Strategic and International Management. As a consultant, Hamel has worked for companies as diverse as General Electric, Time Warner, Nestle, Shell, Best Buy, Procter & Gamble, 3M, IBM, and Microsoft. His pioneering concepts such as "strategic intent" and "core competence" have changed the practice of management in companies around the world. Currently, Hamel is leading a pioneering effort to reinvent management by harnessing the power of open innovation through the Management Innovation Exchange (MIX), an online community supported by strategic partners including McKinsey & Company and the Harvard Business Review.
