Grassroots Innovation

A moral dilemma gripped Professor Gupta when he was invited by the Bangladeshi government to help restructure their agricultural sector in 1985. He noticed how the marginalized farmers were being paid poorly for their otherwise unmatched knowledge. The gross injustice of this constant imbalance led Professor Gupta to found what would turn into a resounding social and ethical movement—the Honey Bee Network—bringing together and elevating thousands of grassroots innovators. For over two decades, Professor Gupta has travelled through rural lands unearthing innovations by the ranks—from the famed Mitti Cool refrigerator to the footbridge of Meghalaya. He insists that to fight the largest and most persistent problems of the world we must eschew expensive research labs and instead, look towards ordinary folk. Innovation—that oft-flung around word—is stripped to its core in this book. Poignant and personal, Grassroots Innovation is an important treatise from a social crusader of our time.

Getting China and India Right

This book is the first strategic guide for multi-national corporations (MNCs)who are contemplating expanding into both China and India. Gupta and Wang explain how many MNCs view China and India solely from the lens of off-shoring and cost-reduction, and focusing their marketing strategies on only the top 5-10% of the population. This is a missed opportunity. China and India are the only two countries that constitute four realities that are strategically crucial for the global enterprise: Both provide mega-markets for almost every product and service Both have platforms that will dramatically reduce the company's global cost structure Both have platforms that will significantly boost the company's global technology and innovation base Both are springboards for the mergence of new fearsome global competitors. This book aims to shed light on the brutal competition for markets and resources in China and India as well as lays out the strategic action implications for those companies who want to emerge as the global players of tomorrow.

The twin forces of ideological change and technology revolution are making globalization one of the most important strategic and organizational issues facing companies today. With every passing day, it is becoming more obvious that managers must view every industry as a global industry and every business as a knowledge business. As worldwide presence becomes a strategic imperative rather than a discretionary choice, an increasing number of companies must confront the essential question: How do we engineer and exploit the ongoing globalization of our industry?
