‘Apparent in Hindsight’ was Showcased During Forbes India Leadership Awards 2015 in Mumbai
It will be available on leading e-commerce websites like Flipkart, Amazon, Snapdeal, etc. and in over 350 book stores across the country post October 30, 2015.
The book delves deep into the chronic problems faced by almost all companies in the Indian automotive industry. It closely examines and challenges the fundamental assumptions that have held firm since time immemorial and guided the management of these companies in procurement, operations, distribution and sales.
The book is also a commentary on the cathartic state of much haloed improvement techniques being employed by companies for decades – large and small alike, with little improvement to show for the humungous efforts being put in.
What it also presents is the only practical way to improving the state of affairs of such companies which is extremely powerful because it is very simple.
Presented as a story of two key managers of a company – the narrative follows their personal and professional struggles as they deal with conflicts and contradictions that life is presenting to them and their attempts to surmount their problems.
Speaking about the book, Apparent in Hindsight, Satyashri Mohanty, Founding Director & Co-Author said, “This book is the culmination of a decade’s experience of implementing pull-based solution of Theory of Constraints (TOC) solutions in about 20 companies in the auto industry right from OEMs in one end of the spectrum to the unorganized Tier 3 and 4 vendors. Each journey has had its shares of highs and lows, allowing us to gain tremendous know-why and more importantly the know-how of the sequence of implementation. And thus decided to put together our experience in a book format.”
