Honors for Leading Geeks
2003 FINANCIAL TIMES GERMANY BOOK AWARD FOR BEST LEADERSHIP BOOK
In a ceremony at the Frankfurt Book Festival, the 2003 Financial Times Germany /
getAbstract Business and Finance Book Prize was awarded to LEADING GEEKS: How to
Manage and Lead People Who Deliver Technology, by Paul Glen, a Los Angeles-based
management consultant and columnist for Computerworld.
The prizes are awarded annually for innovative national and international books on
business and finance. The Financial Times Germany calls the winners "brave forward
thinkers in the areas of business and finance" who are helping drive the economic-political
agenda. The third annual prizes were awarded to books in three categories: globalization,
reform, and leadership. LEADING GEEKS won the award for best leadership book. "The
New Financial Order" by Yale professor Robert Shiller won the award for globalization.
"Ist Deutschland noch zu retten?" ("Is Germany to be Saved?") by German political
economist Hans Werner won the award for reform. And the jury awarded a special prize
for "Der schwarze Grat" ("The Black Burr") by Burkhard Spinnen. The criteria for
selecting winners included: the innovative approach, the practical contents of the
works, the ease of reading and strength of the writing style.
In announcing the award the Financial Times Germany said that "Paul Glen tried something
impossible: to find ways to lead Geeks. Geeks are the computer and technical people
who are outstanding in knowing their way around their special universe, but hardly
know how to communicate with the rest of the world. That makes dealing with them
difficult. Nevertheless, the author names ways to work things out. His book is the
winner in the Leadership category."

by Books24x7 subscribers from January 1 through December 31, 2003. Judges, selected
