Here's some people doing interesting things

Gary Hamel, a famous business school professor and academic, wrote an article in HBR in February 2009 called "Moon Shots for Management". He develops twenty-five organizational challenges management thinking - and the economy - need to get right for the 21st century.

There is now an entire website - Management Information Exchange or MIX heredevoted to people doing interesting things about this, including their stories and experiences.

The Management Moonshots are the heart and soul of the MIX — a roster of make-or-break challenges designed to focus the energies of management innovators everywhere. They emerged in response to a simple but profoundly urgent question: What needs to be done to create organizations that are fit for the future?

There's a lot here. I read Hamel's book The Future of Management earlier this year and enjoyed it.

This kind of thinking is a mixture of blue sky and practical, which I like.
