Scott Anthony's Biography

Scott Anthony is a strategic advisor, writer, and speaker on the topics of growth and innovation. He has been based in Singapore since 2010. Scott is the lead author of the Harvard Business Review Press book, Dual Transformation: How to Reposition Today’s Business While Creating the Future (April 2017).

Scott has also written six other books, including “Seeing What’s Next” (with Harvard Professor Clayton Christensen), “The Little Black Book of Innovation”, and “The First Mile”, seven articles for Harvard Business Review and Sloan Management Review, and more than 200 submissions for HBR.org.

Scott is an expert on business trends and presents cutting-edge research on consumer behaviour, the future of work, and digital transformation. He is known for his data-driven approach and finding tangible insights rather than repeating fashionable business mantras. ‘Watch what your customers do, not what they say’, he advises.

His latest book is ‘Eat, Sleep, Innovate’. It offers a practical toolkit to bring clarity to the opaque topic of culture change in an organisation. Scott is wary of what he calls ‘Innogenda’ aka ‘innovation theatre’, where companies offer glib gestures to suggest a culture of creativity. Instead, Scott defines the specific behaviours that enable innovation success, citing successful examples from case studies as diverse as DBS Bank and UNICEF.

Scott served as Innosight’s Managing Partner from 2012-2018, a period where the company doubled its revenues, expanded to Europe, and was acquired by Huron, a diversified consulting company based in Chicago. He also acted as chair of the investment committee for IDEAS Ventures, an S$10 million venture fund co-managed by Innosight and the Singapore government, from 2009 to 2015, and has served on the Board of Directors of MediaCorp, Singapore’s leading media company, since 2013.

In 2017, Anthony won the Thinkers50 Innovation Award and was recognized by Thinkers50 as one of the world’s 50 leading management thinkers. In 2019, Anthony entered their prestigious top ten as the world’s ninth most influential management thinker. Scott received a BA in economics, summa cum laude, from Dartmouth College and an MBA with high distinction from Harvard Business School, where he was a Baker Scholar.
