India’s innovation future is a topic of much discussion, with many an opinion and a million different predictions. Some say good things lie ahead, others are more pessimistic, and others still are ambivalent. While there is a great deal of discourse around innovation, how to achieve, where it is headed, and the challenges that deter us from it, there is still little concerted effort to enable it, save a few organizations that are ahead of the curve (Mahindra naturally comes to mind).
One thing remains clear however, which is that India’s innovation goals are, to a large degree, held back because of the state of its education systems. It is in response to this lack of adequate training in innovation processes and techniques that the Adianta School for Leadership and Innovation was developed. More on how the school intends to tackle existing challenges, and how it aims to contribute to India’s innovation future, can be found in the following video where the Adianta Chairman, Dr. Aditya Dev Sood describes the school, its design and its goals.
