Book Description


Innovative India: Insights for the Thinking Manager examines the importance of innovation for organizations to grow in a corporate environment that is constantly changing and fiercely competitive. Drawing on years of in-depth research and extensive experience in the Indian industry, Parmit Chadha and Radhika Chadha present an integrated perspective of innovation in organizations as a system comprising the ‘3 Gears’—strategy, culture and processes; three gears that have to mesh perfectly for innovation to be a major profit driver in any set-up. Based on extensive surveys, interviews and real-life cases, the book explores the success of groundbreakers in the corporate sector such as Tata Indica, Tasty Bite, TeNet and Kaya to illustrate how the ‘3 Gears’ work.

In a wide-ranging discussion, the authors also address questions including:

  • Is there a weak linkage between innovation strategy and overall organizational strategy?
  • What should be the CEO’s role in driving innovation?
  • Is the first-mover advantage really critical?
  • Do Indian organizations encourage diversity of opinion?
  • Can the corporate sector learn innovation from the non-corporate sector?
  • Does the Indian education system discourage creativity and risk-taking?
  • Are entrepreneurs supported or hindered by the Indian innovation ecosystem?
  • Can there be a quintessentially Indian model of innovation that goes beyond Japanese ‘Kaizen’ or American ‘big-idea’?

Innovative India provides an opportunity for thinking managers to introspect on their organization’s need for innovation as well as a framework to base their strategies on. This is an important book, not just for managers, but also for anyone who wants to know why innovation, despite being so sought after, is so difficult to implement.
