Event Details


The global economy is getting ever more complex, driven by resource scarcity, demographic shifts, regulatory pressure, and rapid technology changes. To succeed in this hyper-complex environment, organizations must learn to view severe "constraints" not as a debilitating challenge but as an opportunity to innovate and grow.

This PARC Forum talk will explore how entrepreneurs in emerging markets such as India, China, Brazil, and Africa are able to transform extreme adversity into opportunity -- bringing value to themselves and their communities. How do they reframe constraints as opportunities for growth? How can you make your constraints work for you? And how can we continuously adapt to a changing environment?


Navi Radjou is a Fellow at the University of Cambridge Judge Business School, where he served as Executive Director of the Centre for India & Global Business; a member of the World Economic Forum's Global Agenda Council on Design Innovation; and a regular columnist on Harvard Business Review online. Most recently, Navi co-authored the bestseller Jugaad Innovation -- according to The Economist, it is "the most comprehensive book yet to appear" on the subject of frugal innovation.

Navi was a longtime VP/analyst at Forrester Research in Boston and San Francisco, where he advised senior executives worldwide on breakthrough growth strategies. He has consulted with leading international organizations including Ernst & Young, GM, Hitachi, IBM, Marks & Spencer, Microsoft, Procter & Gamble, SAP, Sprint, and TCS. Navi has been featured by major publications; his opinions have appeared in MIT Sloan Management Review, WSJ, and BusinessWeek; and he has spoken at the Council on Foreign Relations, The Conference Board, Asia Society, and other organizations. An Indian-born French national, Navi earned his M.S. degree in information systems from Ecole Centrale Paris, and attended the Yale School of Management. He is based in Silicon Valley.  

This event is part of PARC's special series featuring 10 speakers on 10 aspects of innovation for its 10th anniversary as an independent company. More at www.parc.com/forum.
