    @HarvardBusiness Can you please ask Vijay to elaborate on his point about disruptive innovation from the developing world and how it will impact innovation cycles in the developing world. Vijay briefly touched based on this subject (starting around the 5:17 mark). But, I'd like to know, what else can we do in order to harness this change and make it work for our benefit.

    Mindset of organization, Look at your clothes; It starts from "yourself" new blood, new this, new that doesn't do crap, This starts from you. You should have capacity to fail, capacity to travel in payjamas and not worry about what others think, you have to be poetic and play your cards really well (not foolish, but although to a lot extent you MUST). (I am not being cynnical, but it doesnt start from Harvard, it starts from dropping out and dropping in to things you like).
