I create and share knowledge on innovation and strategy with the aim of making individuals and organizations better innovators. I have over 20 years of experience in innovation as a professor, manager, and a consultant. I did a Ph.D. in Strategy with a thesis on innovation from Duke University and an MBA from Indian Institute of Management (Bangalore). This has allowed me to work with innovators of all stripes across Asia, Europe and the Americas. I have a passion for developing innovators.
