      Why is there a shipping charge for this item?

      Sellers with Flipkart Assured waive off the delivery charge for Orders over Rs 500. For Orders under Rs 500, a nominal delivery charge is added per item.

      Sellers without Flipkart Assured may or may not add a delivery charge to your Order. This is subject to Seller discretion.

      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

      • The Seller offering the product
      • Product's availability with the Seller
      • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

      What do the different tags like 'In Stock', 'Available' mean?

      'In Stock'

      Products‘In Stock’ are readily available with seller.

      'Available'

      Products listed as ‘In Stock’ are readily available with seller.

      'Preorder' or 'Forthcoming'

      The product is not released yet. You can however ‘book’ an order for this. Shipping happens only after the product launch.

      'Out of Stock'

      Currently, the item is not available for sale. Use the 'Notify Me' feature to know once it is available for purchase.

      'Imported'

      Sometimes, items have to be sourced by Sellers from outside India. These items are mentioned as 'Imported' on the product page and can take at least 10 days or more to be delivered to you.

      'Back In Stock Soon'

      The item is popular and is sold out. You can however 'book' an order for the product and it will be shipped according to the timelines mentioned by the Seller.

      'Temporarily Unavailable'

      The product is currently out of stock and is not available for purchase. The product could to be in stock soon. Use the 'Notify Me' feature to know when it is available for purchase.

      This product is no longer available because it is obsolete and/or its production has been discontinued.

      'Out of Print'

      This product is not available because it is no longer published and has been permanently discontinued.

      Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

      Delivery times are influenced by product availability, geographic location of the Seller, your shipping destination and the courier partner's time-to-deliver to your location.

      Please enter your default pin code on the product page to know more accurate delivery times on the product page itself.

      Seller does not/cannot ship to my area. Why?

      Enter your pincode on the product page to know whether the product can be delivered to your location.

      If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

      Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

      • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
      • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
      • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

      At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

    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.

    About the Writers

    Vinay Dabholkar is an Indian entrepreneur and writer.

    Rishikesha T. Krishnan is a professor at the Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore. He is also the Director of IIM Indore, currently on leave.

    Mr. Krishnan holds a fellowship from IIM Calcutta and has studied at Stanford and IIT Kanpur. His areas of interest are: Strategy & Innovation, National Innovation Systems and Competitiveness, and Strategy 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...
