The Institute for Management Studies is excited to announce a special virtual event with Dr. Vijay Govindarajan, who will receive the 2022 IMS Lifetime Achievement Award for his contributions to innovation in strategy.

This is only the fifth time in its 48 year history that IMS has awarded this prestigious honor. The first was to Dr. Russell Ackoff for his work on strategy and systems thinking; second went to Dr. Marshall Goldsmith for his leadership development and coaching contributions; the third was given to Dr. Beverly Kaye for her trailblazing work in the field of career development. And in 2020, we announced our fourth recipient of this coveted award to Dr. David Ulrich for his impact to organizational development and shaping the HR profession.



Vijay Govindarajan, known as VG, is widely regarded as one of the world's leading experts on strategy and innovation. VG was the first Professor in Residence and Chief Innovation Consultant at General Electric. He worked with GE's CEO Jeff Immelt to write "How GE is Disrupting Itself", the Harvard Business Review (HBR) article that pioneered the concept of reverse innovation-any innovation that is adopted first in the developing world. HBR picked reverse innovation as one of the Great Moments in Management in the Last Century. In the latest Thinkers50 Rankings, he was ranked the #1 Indian Management Thinker.
