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 we are eternally grateful to all of you out there who take the time to create and share great innovation articles, presentations, white papers, and videos with Braden Kelley and the Human-Centered Change and Innovation team. As a small thank you to those of you who follow along, we like to make a list of the Top 40 Innovation Bloggers available each year!
Our lists from the ten previous years have been tremendously popular, including:
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
Top 40 Innovation Bloggers of 2020
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, behavioral economics, collaboration, or design thinking?
Human-Centered Change and Innovation is now looking to recognize the Top 40 Innovation Bloggers of 2021.
It is time to vote and help us narrow things down.
The deadline for submitting votes is December 31, 2021 at midnight GMT.
The ranking will be done by me with influence from votes and nominations. The quality and quantity of contributions to this web site 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 2021 will then be announced here in early January 2022.
