‘Unlike an operation to catch rabbits, trapping an elephant calls for expertise over enthusiasm. Those who hunt rabbits are rarely able to rope inelephants.’ Many organizations, even those that may have a brilliant start, falter in their attempts to achieve transformational growth in their laterphases. In The Elephant Catchers, Subroto Bagchi distils his years of on-the-ground learning to explore why this happens and what suchorganizations and their people must do to climb to the next level and beyond. Through a combination of engaging anecdotes from hisexperiences as co-founder and subsequently Chairman, of Mindtree Ltd, as well as practical advice on growth-related issues such as dealingwith consultants or navigating strategy traps and M&As, Bagchi demonstrates a crucial point: Organizations with real ambition to get to the topneed to embrace the idea of scale. The book leads you to evaluate: • Is your organization’s infrastructure designed to evolve and ultimatelymimic the simultaneity of a living organism? • Are you constantly nurturing and renewing your brand identity or letting it stagnate and decay?• Does your sales force have as many hunters as it has farmers? Or is it dominated by a grizzly who just waits for the salmon to land in itsmouth? • In a fiercely competitive environment, are you really stepping ‘out of the box’ and learning from unusual sources? • Are leaders in yourorganization truly building capacity or merely solving problems? Engaging, wise and thoroughly accessible, this book is a must-read foreveryone in every organization seeking breakout success.
