My Background

I am the author of ‘The Dark Side of Innovation’, a book on how not to get disrupted in this age of disruption. The academic community acclaimed my research for this book. I received the best paper award by the International Conference on Innovation and Management. The paper was also published in the International Journal of Innovation in Management.

I am a professor of Strategy and Innovation at the School of Management, Fribourg. Fribourg is a picturesque canton in Switzerland.  Earlier, I was a professor of Strategy at Babson College for over five years.

Prior to this, I had a successful managerial career at Procter & Gamble and Citibank. My passion for innovation led me to seek and excel in roles involving transformation.  For example, I turned around the custodial services business at Citibank. The business was facing massive disruptive forces at that time. I also led the transformation of Citibank’s financial control organization. The same passion helped me lead a large scale organizational transformation project at P&G.

My deep desire to go beyond what I learned about innovation in the corporate world, led me to pursue a Ph.D. I pursued a Ph.D. at Duke University, a leading research institution in the area of innovation. It was one of the most rewarding experiences in my life. It allowed me to converse with and learn from the greatest minds who have ever worked on innovation.

I have lived and worked in seven countries across three continents. These countries are India, Japan, Singapore, Philippines, UAE, Switzerland and the USA. I currently live with my family in the Greater New York area.
