Today would have been the 73rd birthday of C K Prahalad, who died in 2010 after a short illness. His name may not be familiar, unless you are a specialist in the study of management or business administration. However, he brought together and gave academic recognition to ideas which aimed to alleviate poverty, especially in his native India, through work such as theory of core competence and the fortune at the bottom of the pyramid. There is an obituary here.
