"For much of the last century, the practice of management was dominated by Western, particularly U.S., models. Even economies emerging in the latter part of the century evolved toward the Western paradigm. But today, we see a distinct model of management developing in India - and, so far, it has been remarkably successful. India's top companies are growing at staggering rates, and doing so with an innovative and vibrant set of management practices - especially in strategy, leadership, governance, talent, and organizational culture. Not bound to Western thinking or practice, Indian leaders are creating a new model for leading and running companies. And just as American managers turned to Japan in the past for innovative management methods, they can now look to India for what it takes to build fast, flexible, and lean enterprises. Written by the Wharton India Team (talent guru Peter Cappelli, strategy gurus Harbir Singh and Jitendra Singh, and leadership guru Michael Useem) and based on decades of experience consulting and teaching in India along with over 100 interviews of the heads of India's largest companies, this book closely examines what Indian managers do differently and how their management innovations work, which of these innovations could be transferable to the Western context, and ultimately how this new management model could one day modify or even supplant the old."
