We have worked closely in the past with Anil Gupta, Michael Dingman Chair in Global Strategy and Entrepreneurship, University of Maryland, USA. One of the world’s leading business professors, he spoke at Davos this year on how developing nations can increase innovation by creating a diverse ecosystem to nurture creativity, talent and entrepreneurial spirit. You can read a summary of the discussion here.
It’s interesting to see how this conversation resonates with what was said at Chartwell’s RAC breakfast discussion with Julia Hobsbawm and Allister Heath a couple of weeks ago. Here, Julia argued that productivity can be increased by creating cultures that break down rigid hierarchies and encourage collaboration and the more open, fluid exchange of ideas.
