Profs Chen Weiru and Han Jian Make List of Next Generation Business Gurus

February 3, 2017. Shanghai – CEIBS Associate Professor of Strategy Chen Weiru and Associate Professor of Management Han Jian have made a list of “management thinkers most likely to shape the future of how organisations are managed and led”. They are among 30 thought leaders from around the world who made the Thinkers50 Radar which, according to list compilers, “recognises the talent of up and coming management gurus”.

“[The list] is an early warning system to alert managers about the people who are doing exciting and important work,” explained Thinkers50 in a release. “For the second year running it includes Chinese thinkers – this time Weiru Chen and Jian Han of CEIBS…”

Professor Chen Weiru’s research is centred on firms’ innovation and organisational transformation, especially on how platform strategy changes business dynamics and human life. Meanwhile, Professor Han Jian’s research and teaching efforts focus on human resource management, especially on how to improve the world of work through talent management and organisational change. She is also Co-Director of the Centre on China Innovation at CEIBS.

Every two years Thinkers50 publishes its global ranking of management thinkers. Previous winners include Clayton Christensen (2011 and 2013); CK Prahalad (2009 and 2007); and Peter Drucker (2001 and 2003).
