Honors for Leading Geeks


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."
