Difference in perspectives about India

I happened to attend MTHR event where personalities from different walks of life were called to present their thoughts or share their experiences. It was great listening to them. I intend to put down few pointers that I think would help the readers to stop and ponder on those perspectives.

Andy Ray, MD of SAP, India shared what they do to innovate. One thing that caught my attention was when he talked about their seating arrangement for employees. I understand their employees do not have fixed seats and they are allowed to seat wherever they wish such that it benefits them and increases their productivity! For instance, they may chose to sit at a corner one day and may chose to sit near the team the next day based on meetings/work schedule/priorities etc. The objective is to encourage innovation and make the employee think from a different perspective. It may sound different, good or unusual depending on how one perceives it.

I also happened to listen to Devdutt Patnaik’s talk. He has a unique style of studying mythology and applying it to business, leadership, management etc.
