John Skelton from Supply Chain Almanac, features TIME Magazine’s 2011 list of the 25 Most Influential Business Management Books.  I agree with him that “TIME has done a wonderful job in researching and assessing the overall impact that each work has had over the years and decades.”  I also offer these titles for consideration:
