India, Ideas and Gurus
The ideas men of India - an interesting post from the Business Innovation insider blog. It linkes to this article. On a related note here's a comment I made on Dave Lefkow's blog:
I believe that the way Indian firms deploy and develop talent is fundamentally different in the way US firms deploy and develop their talent.
The reason is the cultural difference to knowledge and competence in the two cultures.
To put it more plainly, Indian firms are better at "guruism", having their exceptional individuals maintain their knowledge and tacit knowledge to a much higher extent than a US firm.
A US based organization structures work so that it becomes broken down and can be replicated easily.
