Each episode, we learn from experts who have shaped the future of work to make it awesome. They share how they solved business problems and achieved results. We explore how they tapped human potential in a way that made people find purpose, achieve mastery and gain autonomy.
Innovation is necessary to shape the future of work. Our guest for this episode, Gaurav Johri, has led teams to innovate under different circumstances. Gaurav is the CEO of Doppelio, a start-up that has innovated in reducing the time and cost of testing distributed field control equipment. His company has been selected by NASSCOM, under the Digital India Initiative.
Gaurav talks about how there really is no playbook for innovation. What is needed is a humble spirit willing to learn and the courage to change is what is needed. He talks of how big companies are also innovative. They struggle only in adapting their business model to breakthrough innovation.
Creative Innovation is one of the principles of the SemcoStyle Framework. The framework and the associated road map for implementation has been used by companies to transform themselves into high performing firms with purpose-filled employees. In sharing the experience of leaders like Gaurav, we hope we help you fine-tune your own leadership of your teams when it comes to innovation.
