Tom Stewart describes the five toughest challenges that "are, should or will keep executives up at night." With insight from his unique vantage at Harvard Business Review, Stewart shows audiences how to meet and conquer the demands of rapid decision-making, exercising authority without control, "King Customer," extreme competition and wise decision-making.
Thomas A. Stewart is the Editor and Managing Director of the Harvard Business Review. Prior to joining HBR, he was Editorial Director of Business 2.0 and a member of the Board of Editors of Fortune. In a series of Fortune articles, he pioneered the field of intellectual capital, which led to his groundbreaking 1997 book, Intellectual Capital: The New Wealth of Organizations. In turn, Intellectual Capital was named one of the most important business books of the year by the Financial Times, and has been translated into seventeen languages. His second book, The Wealth of Knowledge: Intellectual Capital and the Twenty-first Century Organization, published early in 2002, reveals how today's companies are applying the concept of intellectual capital into day-to-day operations to dramatically increase their success in the marketplace.
Mr. Stewart, 58, graduated summa cum laude from Harvard College with a BA in English literature and holds an honorary Doctor of Science degree from City University, London. He is married and has two children.
