Winners announced!

We’re thrilled to introduce you to the winners of the Management 2.0 Challenge—the first phase of the HBR/McKinsey M-Prize for Management Innovation.



All the finalists

Here are the 20 finalists:


In the first leg of the Harvard Business Review-McKinsey M-Prize for Management Innovation, we invited management innovators from every realm of endeavor to share the most progressive practices and disruptive ideas that illustrate how the governing principles and tools of the Web can make our organizations more adaptable, innovative, inspiring, and accountable.

They did. We received more than 140 impressive Stories (instructive case studies) and Hacks (experimental designs), selected 20 stellar finalists, and announced seven winners of the Management 2.0 Challenge.

Read more about Management 2.0 in Gary Hamel’s challenge essay. You can check out the winning entries feature above, learn more about the finalists here, and explore all of the entries.
