Kim is a winner of the Eldridge Haynes Prize, awarded by the Academy of International Business and the Eldridge Haynes Memorial Trust of Business International, for the best original paper in the field of international business. He was selected for Thinkers 50, the global ranking of business thinkers, and was named along with his colleague Renee Mauborgne, as "the number one gurus of the future" by L'Expansion, one of France's leading business magazines. The Sunday Times (London) called them "two of Europe's brightest business thinkers. Kim and Mauborgne provide a sizeable challenge to the way managers think about and practice strategy." The Observer called Kim and Mauborgne, "the next big gurus to hit the business world."
Kim and Mauborgne co-founded the Value Innovation Network (VIN), a global community of practice on the Value Innovation family of concepts that they created. VIN embraces academics, consultants, executives, and government officers. Kim is also a board member of the Value Innovation Action Tank (VIAT), a non-profit organization, which has 15 Singapore government ministeries and agencies as founding partners. VIAT was established in March 2004 to bring Value Innovation to the country's private, public and people sectors. The Times (London) said, "the ultimate centre of excellence is one which does not cost the business school any money, but which positions its faculty as leaders in its field, creator of practical ideas, and direct influencer of governments. In this, Singapore's Value Innovation Action Tank (VIAT) is probably the benchmark. VIAT aims to convert Kim and Mauborgne's ideas into reality by using a variety of frameworks, processes, tools and educational programmes."
