    Description

    In this book on innovation, the writers showcase how an idea can be deliberate and planned, or better yet, from Jugaad to Excellence.

    Summary of the Book

    Ideas, the writers believe, aren't necessarily ad hoc. They do not need to happen instantaneously, and certainly in an environment that encourages innovation and promotes alternative methods to solving problems, ideas will be only consequential. With examples closer to home, the book discusses using ideas developed in-house with an eye for constraints and promoting more ideas through implementation.

    One of the must reads

    I am totally amazed by this book, it changed my whole perception of Innovation. The transition from Jugaad to Systematic Innovation explained very clearly. It is a page turner.

    From jugaad to Innovation

    there are lot of books in strategic management but this book provides a unique Indian context of SM, its full of case studies and the authors make their point in a convincing manner. Innovation is stressed as the key to excellence and the way to excel in market competition. Its a nice compilation of the many cases in india from the not so very neatly organized Rural enterprises to the systematic I.T., all at one place.

    Indian Case Studies

    Read the book for well compiled Indian case studies and examples. The book lacks original thinking though. It draws inspiration from the works of several other thinkers.

    You too can be an innovator

    Innovation is a buzz word. Most of us think that 'real' innovation is something creative minds do in a unique setting and that our situations are too bureaucratic and our managers too rigid and our responsibilities too big for us to take risks like 'innovation'.

    This book will make you rethink such assumptions. It has real life stories of innovation happening in settings similar to ours - done by ordinary people like you and me.

    The backdrop varies from dusty Indian villages to silicon v...

    Not a good book to buy !

    While this Book received a lot of good reviews from a lot of people i know at IIM Bangalore . I even got a couple of mails with regards to the quality of this book from a lot of people. It seems everything was more of a marketing gimmick. If you are a well read person. You will find hardly anything new or innovative in this book. A compilation of innovation by a host of companies with hardly any research just global gyan . To be avoided if you are actually looking to innovate .

    An insightful guide for Indian Innovation Managers

    As I read the book over the last one week, I felt as if I was talking to Vinay and Rishi in person. The book is filled with the insights that the authors have gained from their rich career in consulting (Vinay) and teaching (Rishi) Innovation. It is an absolute treat to read this book.

    The book is structured in three parts (a) how to build an idea pipeline (b) how to improve idea velocity and (c) how to increase batting average. The book gives a practical approach to managing innovative ide...

    An approach to innovation in Indian context!

    Now one more book on innovation is not exactly an innovative idea - but I picked up the book because the blurb promised an absorbing read. The book indeed lived up to its promise. Illustrated with numerous examples from Indian industry, various workshops; the authors logically build a case for their approach without making it pedantic.

    There is this beautiful metaphor of ' the elephant and the rider ' - signifying the power of organization and relative smallness of leader directing it. ...

    Good book giving great insight into Innovation!

    I have been through multiple "IT" companies over the last 20 years, both MNCs, where the customer is far away, and in "purely Indian companies" where the customer is nearer. In both these types, there are different kinds of challenges when looking for some original R&D work to do. What is it that we are missing? Why is it that not all our products reach the market and give us lots of profits? Many of such questions were cleared when I started going through this book. This book is an interest...
