For the Thinkers50 2013 awards, you have the opportunity to voice your vote for your favorite Tuck professor.

At Tuck, we are fortunate to have so many faculty members who are thought leaders in their field. New nominees this year for awards are Syd Finkelstein, professor of management, and Ron Adner, professor of strategy and entrepreneurship.

Here’s a recap of the 2011 results including Tuck’s own Vijay Govindarajan (VG), Marshall Goldsmith, and Richard D’Aveni.

VG came in at #3. Thinkers50 lauded VG's concept of "reverse innovation" as one of the ten biggest ideas of the past decade. VG also won the Breakthrough Idea Award for his $300 house campaign to re-invent housing for the world’s poorest people and was nominated for the Innovation Award.

Marshall Goldsmith, renowned leadership coach to top executives, made the Thinkers50 list at #7. Professor Goldsmith earned the top spot for Leadership at the awards banquet.

Professor Richard D'Aveni, best known for the concept of “hypercompetition,” is on the list at #21.

Executive Director of Tuck Executive Education, Clark Callahan, presented an award in 2011. Tuck is sponsoring the awards event again on November 11, 2013.

Sydney Finkelstein has been identified as “On the Radar” for his work on strategy and capabilities of high performing leaders, as addressed in his best-selling book, Why Smart Executives Fail.

You may have had a class and engaged with these professors during your program, as they work closely with our clients and participants by bringing their game-changing ideas to learning initiatives.  If you want to vote for another Tuck professor or leader, we encourage you to do so.  

Deadline for voting is September 1, 2013
