Book description

The World's Leading Business Minds on Today's Most Critical Challenges

The most innovative ideas from the Thinkers50

India now produces a disproportionately high percentage of the business world's most influential thinkers. As globalization progresses, it is increasingly clear that Indian thought leaders will have a major infl uence over how the world conducts business going forward.

Creators of the Thinkers50--the world's most respected ranking of business thinkers--Des Dearlove and Stuart Crainer bring you the very latest from India's leading business thinkers.

Thinkers50 Business Thought Leaders from India reveals the uniquely Indian approach to management--which is in many ways radically different from Western-style capitalism. Less obsessed with profit and more focused on purpose, Indian-style management is changing the world of business. Chapters include:

  • The Ghoshal Legacy
  • Pyramid Thinking: C. K. Prahalad
  • Making It Happen: Ram Charan and Subir Chowdhury
  • Innovation Indian Style: From VG to Jugaad
  • Global Voices: Pankaj Ghemawat and Anil K. Gupta

Each book in the Thinkers50 series provides authoritative explanations of the concepts, ideas, and practices that are making a difference today, including specific examples and cases drawn from the original sources.

Where is business headed? Deeper into the type of capitalism that focuses on strategy, structure, and systems? Or toward a new approach that values purpose, process, and people? Read Thinkers50 Business Thought Leaders from India for an expert perspective on this critical topic.
