Oren Harari

In 2002, Oren Harari was selected by the London Financial Times and Prentice Hall as one of “the world’s greatest management thinkers” and was featured with 39 other prominent individuals in the book Business Minds. For the last 25 years, as a leading author, lecturer, and consultant, he has presented provocative new perspectives on competitive advantage, organizational change, and transformational leadership.

In his books, articles, and blogs, Harari debunks conventional approaches to management and describes the strategic decisions and leadership behaviors that actually do propel organizations into a successful position of competitive advantage. His 2002 book The Leadership Secrets of Colin Powell reached the bestseller lists of The New York Times, BusinessWeek, and The Wall Street Journal. Other books that he has authored or co-authored have achieved bestseller status and numerous accolades, including Beep Beep! Competing in the Age of the Roadrunner, Leapfrogging the Competition: Five Giant Steps to Becoming a Market Leader, and Jumping the Curve: Innovation and Strategic Choice in an Age of Transition.
