Thinkers50 names Geoff Tuff and Steven Goldbach as finalists for Distinguished Achievement Awards in Strategy

Thinkers50, the world's most reliable resource for identifying, ranking, and sharing the leading management ideas of our age, has named Geoff Tuff and Steve Goldbach as finalists in their 2019 Thinkers50 Distinguished Achievement Awards. Tuff and Goldbach were nominated for the Strategy Award, celebrating the very best of strategic thinking.

The Thinkers50 2019 awards celebrates the very best in management thinking and provides a forum for their community of thinkers to share the leading business and management ideas. The awards are made in the following categories: Innovation; Digital Thinking; Strategy; Leadership; Talent; Breakthrough Idea; the Radar Award for the best up-and-coming new thinker; and the Lifetime Achievement Award.

Too many organizations have developed bad habits, contend Deloitte Consulting duo Goldbach and Tuff in their incendiary book, Detonate: Why - and How - Corporations Must Blow Up Best Practices (and bring a beginner's mind) To Survive. They propose concepts such as Shunryu Suzuki's "beginner's mind" to create four strategic "detonate" principles, and challenge seven existing best practice beliefs.
