Royal Dutch/Shell's Cor Herkstroter, mastermind of the most ambitious makeover among the world's energy behemoths;

British Airways' Sir Colin Marshall, the market genius who powered the carrier's celebrated turnaround;

Chase Manhattan's Walter Shipley, architect of one of the largest mergers ever to take place in the financial sector;

Monsanto's Robert B. Shapiro, who has raised the hurdle bar on growth and profitability goals, although the company is at the peak of its form;

British Aerospace's Sir Richard Evans, developer of one of Britain's biggest and boldest corporate-change management programs;

Compaq Computer's Eckhard Pfeiffer, who has transformed himself from a successful turnaround artist into a hard-driving champion of continuous corporate renewal.
