Business Standard review of "From Jugaad to Systematic Innovation"

In his review in the Business Standard (August 6, 2010), Subir Roy writes, "The author, a faculty member of the Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore, has undertaken a careful examination of the various facets of innovation. ….He examines the factors that promote industrial innovation, uses various measures to take stock of India’s current innovation status, and takes a detailed look at why India has failed to achieve its innovation potential, identifying the barriers to innovation. In the last chapter, he provides an agenda for India to move from jugaad — the rough and ready improvisation that has mostly passed for innovation till now — to systematic innovation."
