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. In 2009 Thinkers 50, the global ranking of management gurus, placed him and his partner Jonas Ridderstrale among the list of most influential thinkers. His research and consulting focus is on the areas of corporate strategy, multinational corporations and globalization.

In 2000 he published the book 'Funky Business: Talent Makes Capital Dance', which was written with his colleague Jonas Ridderstråle. 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. Another survey ranked it as the 16th best business book of all time. In 2003, the follow-up 'Karaoke Capitalism: Management for Mankind', also written together with Jonas Ridderstråle, was published.

The book, which also became an international success, has to date been contracted for publication in 23 languages. In March 2004, Nordström and Ridderstråle appeared on CNN's program Global Office for an extensive interview on the ideas behind Karaoke Capitalism. Nordström and Ridderstråle works as professional public speakers in the field of strategic management. The 2005 Thinkers 50, the bi-annual global ranking of management thinkers, ranked Nordström and Ridderstråle at number nine internationally and number one in Europe.
