Strategic directions come from an organisation’s willingness & commitment to create more value for all stakeholders, faster. Strategy was always related to our ability to identify an opportunity, take measured risks to take advantage of the opportunity, be different & the ability to execute the vision.
This entailed a constant vigil on what’s happening in the real world, listening to ground signals & making refined changes to strategy based on these inputs. And with the huge paradigm shift way back then to use machines not just as dumb devices but intelligent things they decided to reinvent themselves as a startup.
With this talk Dr. Arvind Tilak takes us on their journey of how things worked the way they envisaged during these strategic pivots & many things did not, what saved them from a complete failure and their strong belief as an organisation "Be Change Ready".
