Jugaad Innovation (English) (Hardcover) Price: Rs.1769

A frugal and flexible approach to innovation for the 21st century.

Innovation is a key directive at companies worldwide. But in these tough times, we can't rely on the old formula that has sustained innovation efforts for decades—expensive R&D projects and highly-structured innovation processes. Jugaad Innovation argues the West must look to places like India, Brazil, and China for a new approach to frugal and flexible innovation. The authors show how in these emerging markets, jugaad (a Hindi word meaning an improvised solution born from ingenuity and cleverness) is leading to dramatic growth and how Western companies can adopt jugaad innovation to succeed in our hypercompetitive world.

  • Outlines the six principles of jugaad innovation: Seek opportunity in adversity, do more with less, think and act flexibly, keep it simple, include the margin, and follow your heart
  • Features twenty case studies on large corporations from around the world—Google, Facebook, 3M, Apple, Best Buy, GE, IBM, Nokia, Procter & Gamble, PepsiCo, Tata Group, and more—that are actively practicing jugaad innovation
  • The authors blog regularly at Harvard Business Review; their work has been profiled in BusinessWeek, MIT Sloan Management Review, The Financial Times, The Economist, and more
  • Filled with previously untold and engaging stories of resourceful jugaad innovators and entrepreneurs in emerging markets and the United States

This groundbreaking book shows leaders everywhere why the time is right for jugaad to emerge as a powerful business tool in the West—and how to bring jugaad practices to their organizations.

Must read

Amazing book and i would highly recommend this book. Very well presented and very well researched. Gives clear idea on Jugad(frugal) innovation and some great examples of Jugad innovation. the best part is they havent restricted their studies only to Indian context but also documents Jugad innovations from other developing countries like Brazil,China and others. Over all its a great book if your interesting in knowing more Jugad innovation.

Wrongly Portrays Jugaad

I bought this book thinking it would have real stories of jugaad innovation in adverse situations. However it turned out to be a rather preachy business book with hardly any substance (except in first few page). Writers have used the word Jugaad willy nilly, slapping it onto anything that catches their fancy.

very shallow book!

i bought this book with lot of expectation going by the foreword and the topic itself. To to my utter disappointment, I could not read beyond 40 pages of the book. The book seems to have been written by authors sitting in a Ivory Tower. To me it seems to have missed the meaning and spirit of Jugaad by miles and have brushed routine things done by people and business houses as jugaad!! Tulsi Tanti starting wind business, SBI chairman initiating training programs, 3 M CEOs changing and re-changing the company policies, someone leasing the land for agriculture..... etc in no way are jugaad.

Recomend dont buy this book, at best read it from a library. Also I would again like to confess that i found the book so shallow and off the mark that I couldn't read beyond 40 pages so I might have missed some sparks of genius that may be hidden somewhere in the book.

A book with a difference

This book presents a refreshingly new and cogent case to bring out the innovators in all of us; including students, entrepreneurs, CEOs, underdogs and even people who run countries. Plus, it contains sufficient number of examples to prove that their case is pragmatic. After finishing this book, I felt my understanding for a lot of things had grown tremendously.

changed my life - innovation is my passion

Good points: very good examples, case studies from corporate world; examples from history and evolution of successful corporates; talks on the best in last two chapters;
Unemployed youth should look for doing business rather for job.

Bad points: Some content was repeated, some precise way should be used to say one thing.

Overall: I have made many changes in my life; and it brought me to see change the world.
