In an era of dramatic change, Galileo built a powerful telescope and observed the stars. Contrary to theory, he saw that the earth was not the center of the solar system. It was an observation that profoundly changed the course of history.When Dr. Elizabeth Jayanti reviewed over 1,300 books and articles and compared over 100 top academic and commercial business tools, what she found was staggering: almost all of the business tools we use today are based on theories from the Industrial era which have never been tested. This was her Galileo Moment, when she realized that the real-world data didn't match what she had been taught.Embracing her Galileo Moment, she set out on a journey to understand how market-leading companies really work in today's economy. The Galileo Moment crystallizes the nuggets of wisdom gathered on this journey.Ultimately, The Galileo Moment asks readers to leave behind Industrial-era management practices and step into the present-day knowledge economy.

From the Back Cover:

"Elizabeth has done a marvelous job in getting to the very essence of the things that lead to market-leading, high performing organizations. Stripping away the veneer of high-minded theories, she's distilled her message to a set of timeless and trusted concepts that endure." -Marti Nyman, Fortune 100 Executive (GE, Ericsson, Best Buy, UnitedHealthcare)
"A great read, bringing thought and theory to many circumstances in decision-making in individuals as well as organizations, and helping you focus on what really matters to get results."- Raymond Han, Global Head of Business Development, Nissan Motor Co., Ltd., Japan
"The Galileo Moment is so simple it can be paralyzing--a moment when an individual decides to serve the world with the greatest magnitude possible, by honoring truths over traditions." -Lisa Evanson, Director of Marketing, SparkStarter, USA
"Make no mistake, it's indeed a Herculean task, even Galilean to think differently when almost everyone is convinced that years of experience and doing things 'the same way' is the norm... This book helps us see beyond theories and gets us down to answer questions about the culture and contexts on the ground, before we design solutions."- Isaac Koshy Modiyil, Senior HR Manager, Banking and Finance Sector, UAE
