Don was also awarded the prestigious Global Solutions Award recognizing him as conducting the most significant work in the world about how to solve global problems.
Thinkers50, called “The Oscars of Management Thinking” is the definitive list of management thinkers globally and is released every two years. Don was #9 on the list in 2011.
The Global Solutions Award was given to Don for launching and leading the Global Solution Networks program based at the Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto. The multi-million dollar program is funded primarily by large corporations and is investigating how the digital revolution enables new models of global problem solving, and governance.

The Thinkers50 news release states “Americans still feature strongly but the list is increasingly international. Remarkably, the nationality punching well above its demographic weight is Canada, with two thinkers in the top 10. Roger Martin and Don Tapscott.”
