Remembering C.K. Prahalad

We at MIT Sloan Management Review  were saddened to learn of the recent death of influential management thinker C.K. Prahalad, a professor at the Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan and the author of well-known management books such as "The Fortune at The Bottom of the Pyramid."

As an obituary in the Financial Times notes, Prahalad's "death brings a premature end to what was a remarkable and highly productive career. Over the last three decades CK launched radical new ideas which would soon become conventional wisdom."

Prahalad contributed a number of articles to MIT Sloan Management Review; in fact, he coauthored more than half a dozen articles that appeared in MIT SMR between 1976 and 2003:




    • With Yves L. Doz, "Headquarters Influence and Strategic Control in MNCs" (Fall 1981)


    • Also with Doz, "An Approach to Strategic Control in MNCs" (Summer 1981)
    • With Mel Horwitch, "Managing Multi-Organization Enterprises: The Emerging Strategic Frontier" (Winter 1981)
    • Also with Horwitch, "Managing Technological Innovation -- Three Ideal Modes" (Winter 1976)

    Thank you for this timely remembrance of Prahalad’s works in MIT Sloan. The memory of such an influential scholar certainly needs to be cherished more.
