If the 1980s and 1990s were the decades of Japan and quality can the 2010s and 2020s be the decades of India and innovation. Can we use innovation as a springboard to tackle the challenges facing India today. India is known as country not of innovation but of improvisation or Jugaad as they say in Hindi. But that has begun to change. We have enough examples in this country of people who have achieved breakthrough innovation who have turned industry norms upside down to pull off the impossible in their fields. Eleven such case studies are featured in the book including Titan which came out with the slimmest water resistant watch in the world thereby accomplishing something that even the Swiss hadn't Su Kam a power backup company that did not fit into an existing industry but ended up creating a new one Shantha biotech which developed a low cost Hepatitis B vaccine and ushered in the biotechnology age in India Trichy police which rewrote policing paradigms to nip extremism and crime in the bud thus transforming the city. Through the breakthroughs achieved by these eleven organizations Porus Munshi an innovation consultant shows that to do what is considered Impossible in your particular industry you have to be subversive and think differently. For only a subversive mindset can challenge and transform the status quo and make breakthrough innovation happen. In the process if the existing business model needs to be turned on its head then so be it. 236 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 73903
