Kjell Anders Nordström is a Swedish economist, writer, and public speaker. Amid the madness and hyperbole surrounding the new economy, Dr. Kjell A. Nordström is a guru of the new world of business. His research and consulting focus is on the areas of corporate strategy, multinational corporations, and globalization.
In 2000 the book “Funky Business – Talent Makes Capital Dance”, which was written by Kjell A. Nordström and his colleague Jonas Ridderstråle, was published. The book, which is described as a “manifesto of what our time requires from business firms and their leaders”, became an international best-seller and has to date been translated into 33 languages. In 2000, both Amazon.co.uk and the webzine Management General rated it as one of the five best business books of the year.
Today, Nordström and Ridderstråle work as professional public speakers in the field of strategic management.
