For more than a decade I’ve devoted myself to making innovation insights accessible for the greater good, because I truly believe that the better our organizations get at delivering value to their stakeholders the less waste of natural resources and human resources there will be.
As a result I am eternally grateful to all of you out there who take the time to create and share great innovation articles, presentations, white papers, and videos and to make a list of the Top 40 Innovation Bloggers available each year.
My lists from the eight previous years have been tremendously popular:
Top 40 Innovation Bloggers of 2012
Top 40 Innovation Bloggers of 2013
Top 40 Innovation Bloggers of 2014
Top 40 Innovation Bloggers of 2015
Top 40 Innovation Bloggers of 2016
Top 40 Innovation Bloggers of 2017
Top 40 Innovation Bloggers of 2018
Top 40 Innovation Bloggers of 2019
Business Strategy Innovation is now looking for the Top 40 Innovation Bloggers of 2020.
Do you, or does someone you know, write articles about innovation?
Or do you just have someone that you like to read that writes about innovation, or some of the important adjacencies – trends, consumer psychology, change, leadership, strategy, marketing, management, collaboration, or social media (as they relate to innovation)?
Well, Business Strategy Innovation is looking to recognize the Top 40 Innovation Bloggers and you helped us find them with your nominations. Now it is time to vote, and help us narrow things down to a list of the Top 40 Innovation Bloggers of 2020.
The deadline for submitting votes is January 7, 2021 at midnight GMT.
The ranking will be done by me with influence from votes and nominations. The quality and quantity of contributions by an author will be a BIG contributing factor (through the end of the voting period).
You can vote in any of these three ways (and each earns points for them, so please feel free to vote all three ways):
- Sending us the name of the blogger by @reply on twitter to @innovate
- Adding the name of the blogger as a comment to this article’s posting on Facebook
- Adding the name of the blogger as a comment to this article’s posting on our Linkedin Page (Be sure and follow us)
The official Top 40 Innovation Bloggers of 2020 and the contest winners will then be announced here in early January 2021.
