In his incisive foreword to the book, veteran chartered accountant Shailesh Haribhakti observes that ‘the GPS Paradigm is a robust, practical, dependable, and immensely energizing master algorithm for achieving measurable and sustainable business success in a post-COVID world thriving on disruptive innovation” Disruptive innovation amid perpetual unpredictability is the New Normal, and in fact the DNA of Gen-Next Techpreneurs! The book outlines how to deal with unnerving uncertainty all around us and enables companies across sectors and spheres to thrive (not merely survive), stay relevant, and ensure sustainable growth. GPS represents three interwoven pre-requisites that founders, and business managers must ensure: One, securing Ground Intelligence before even thinking any M&A or initiation of JVs talks; Two, forging Unconventional Partnerships; and three, designing Strategic Solutions. The tenets of GPS Paradigm apply to all types of M&As and JVs (in all variants) across all industries and service sectors. Simply put, this book is for those mavericks who, more than merely driving the change, are aspiring to be the change.
Endorsing the book, Robert B. Ahdieh, Dean Texas A&M University of Law School says, “Nitin Potdar’s GPS Paradigm is a seminal contribution to the futurist and experimentalist literature in law and finance.
