Sirkin writes a regular column entitled "Globality" for BusinessWeek.com [6] and at one time seems to have contributed to The New York Times Syndicate's "Global Business Perspectives column" but hasn't done so since at least 2007.[7] He is the co-author of two books: Payback: Reaping the Rewards of Innovation,[8] which advises companies to adopt a systematic approach to innovation, and Globality: Competing with Everyone from Everywhere for Everything,[9] which explores strategies for economic competition under globality, the end state of globalization. Payback was named one of the "Best Innovation and Design Books for 2006" by BusinessWeek magazine.[10] Globality was picked by The Economist as one of the best business books of 2008.[11] Sirkin has also contributed to Time and the Harvard Business Review.

He graduated summa cum laude from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania in 1980 with a B.S. in Economics, and from the University of Chicago in 1981 with an M.B.A. He is also a CPA.[12]
