Tom Davenport, President’s Distinguished Professor of Information Technology & Management at Babson, has been named to the Business Educators, LLC, “A-List of Management Academics,” an honorary list of the 30 most accomplished and distinguished professors in U.S. academia for 2011. ​

This compilation includes professors from the nation’s top business schools, including Columbia University, Harvard University, Stanford University, and Yale University. 
 
Davenport teaches decision-making in the MBA program at Babson. He has taught at Harvard Business School, University of Chicago, Dartmouth's Tuck School of Business, and the University of Texas at Austin. He has directed research centers at Accenture, Ernst & Young, McKinsey & Company, and CSC Index.

Davenport wrote, co-authored or edited fourteen books, including the first books on analytical competition, business process reengineering, knowledge management, and the business value of enterprise systems. He has written hundreds of articles and columns for such publications as Harvard Business Review, Sloan Management Review, California Management Review, Financial Times, Information Week, CIO and many others. His most recent book (with Jeanne Harris and Bob Morison), is Analytics at Work, following the best-seller Competing on Analytics. In 2003, he was named one of the top 25 consultants in the world by Consulting magazine; in 2005 he was rated the third most influential business and technology analyst in the world (after Peter Drucker and Tom Friedman) and in 2007 and 2008 he was the highest-ranking business academic in Ziff-Davis' listing of the 100 most influential people in the IT industry. His 2006 “Competing on Analytics” article in Harvard Business Review was named one of the most influential management ideas of the decade in 2011.
“Being a phenomenal educator is about more than lecturing in a classroom,” says Dan Hoeyer, founder of Business Educators. “It’s about being able to inspire and engage students while infusing them with seasoned knowledge and insight—whether the topic is strategic management or finance. The A-List of Management Academics is comprised of the academic thought leaders of our time. It is our way of recognizing educator excellence based on their professional accomplishments, renown in their field, and most of all, their dedication to sharing their rich expertise with others.”
Honorees of the A-List of Management Academics are chosen annually by Business Educators based on their record of outstanding achievements in their respective fields as well as overall public interest. Public interest is gauged by a high estimated web search volume for the individual’s name on Google. List honorees must demonstrate active participation in their field of specialty by having had books or relevant articles published within the last three years. The professors listed in the A-List of Management Academics include, but are not limited to, members of the Business Educators network.
