Who is Gary Hamel? Who is your source of inspiration?

Management Craft

I was talking to a small group of MBA students recently and asked if any had heard of Gary Hamel. It was also a surprise because Gary Hamel seems like the kind of guru that would be mentioned a lot during an MBA program - he is an academic, an author, and a top speaker. Hamel, Peters, Kotter, Bennis, etc. But seriously, if you are a manager or leader, you should know about Gary Hamel. Hip hop AND Hamel.
