This book is an intimate and a rare collection of more than 30 stories of top Indian business leaders about how late Professor CK Prahalad inspired and guided them through their most painful journey after the 1991 Economic Reforms. Most of them, who didn’t think they could survive the MNC onslaught, went on to build profitable global enterprises.
At a time when most business and management ideas are getting debunked CK’s radical approach to strategy, managing people, leadership, teaching, and life, will continue to be relevant and will interest business leaders, entrepreneurs, policy makers, students and the academia around the world.
The first edition, published in 2014, covered a wide area and was perceived as CK’s biography. This edition covers more business pole-vaulting stories with a separate chapter on India’s mammoth potential to become a global leader in healthcare.
This book is an invitation to celebrate and learn from one of the world’s greatest management thinkers.
“CK was gathering us like a shepherd would gather his flock and was essentially bent on chastising us for what we hadn’t done and how we could do.” Anand Mahindra, Chairman, Mahindra Group
