Harvard Business Review: A New Way to Think

AmCham Denmark, in partnership with DAWN, invite you to an event with Harvard Business Review Author & Management thought leader Roger L. Martin, to discuss his book “A New Way to Think” – Your Guide to Superior Management Effectiveness.

We are in the midst of a great reboot, with business leaders navigating the uncertainty of a world forever changed by the pandemic. In a new book, Roger L. Martin – one of the greatest business thinkers of our time – argues that in order to solve their most pressing challenges, leaders must first rethink their models.

Models – frameworks or ways of thinking – guide a leader’s strategy and activities. Over the last 40 years as a trusted adviser to CEOs of some of the world’s top companies, Martin has seen the dominant models of management fail leaders time and again. In his new book, A New Way to Think: Your Guide to Superior Management Effectiveness (Harvard Business Review Press; May 3, 2022), he urges leaders to abandon the old ways of thinking, and instead try new models in every domain of management – from competition and customers to strategy, data, culture, talent, M&A and everything in between.

Roger was named the world’s #1 management thinker by Thinkers50. Join us to hear management tips from one of the world’s #1 management thinkers by Thinkers50 – and a trusted strategy advisor to the CEOs of companies worldwide including Procter & Gamble, Lego and Ford.

Roger L. Martin is Professor Emeritus at the Rotman School of Management at University of Toronto, where he served as Dean from 1998 to 2013, and as Institute Director of the Martin Prosperity Institute from 2013 to 2019. In 2013, he was named Global Dean of the Year and in 2017, he was named the world’s number one management thinker by Thinkers50. He has published 12 previous books including When More Is Not Better and Playing to Win (with A. G. Lafley), which won the award for Best Book of 2012-13 by Thinkers50. Martin is a trusted strategy adviser to the CEOs of many global companies. A Canadian from Wallenstein, Ontario, he holds a BA from Harvard College and an MBA from Harvard Business School.
