Dr. Donald N. Sull has spoken at management symposia around the world as an expert keynote speaker on business and management practice and strategy. The Economist named him “a rising star in a new generation of management gurus.”

Named by Fortune as one of the new management stars, Professor of Management Practice in Strategic and International Management and Faculty Director of Executive Education at the London Business School, Don designed, directs and teaches an intensive week-long "boot camp" to help senior executives thrive in turbulent markets.

Donald has published four books and over 100 case studies, book chapters, and articles, including several best-selling Harvard Business Review articles, and has been identified as a guru by the Economist, which named his theory of active inertia as an idea that has shaped business management over the past century.

His latest book, Simple Rules: How to Thrive in a Complex World, explores how business leaders face complexity in organizations, markets, and technology, which is one of the biggest challenges of the 21st century.

He has won teaching awards at the London Business School and Harvard University. Donald received his AB, MBA, and doctorate from Harvard University, and served as a Professor of Entrepreneurship at Harvard Business School before rejoining the London Business School faculty.

His book, Made in China: What Western managers can learn from trail-blazing Chinese entrepreneurs,  was named one of the top eight business books of 2005 by the Financial Times. His book Why Good Companies go Bad was a finalist for the Academy of Management's Outstanding Management Book Award and translated into eight languages. Donald's academic research awards include the Dively Award for outstanding dissertation and the Newcomen Prize for the best business history article.

Before academia, Donald worked as a consultant with McKinsey & Company, and as a management-investor with the leveraged buyout firm Clayton, Dubilier & Rice. He is an active investor in several technology start-ups, and advises executives in multinational firms.

Donald is currently using big data to measure and quantify how well organizations execute their strategy. His team has developed a state-of-the-art survey to assess execution capacity. He also designed and directed an action research program with the  Young Presidents’ Organization to quantify the impact of interventions to increase execution capacity.
