Post my various positions over 2 decades, across the globe and across diverse business lines, in early 2008, I was given the responsibility of creating and growing a B2C business for our group. What a time to start a new business! Wish I had a clue about the impending financial crisis that hit the whole world. Still we braved the tsunami and here we are strongly emerging as a first of its kind Consumer Technology organization to service the Youngistan (young Indians). Besides other supports that we gained from various stake holders of our business, our endeavor to transform is one strong reason for our progress so for.

As per Oxford Dictionary “Transform” means "make a marked change in the form, nature, appearance of” and this is followed by an example…." he wanted to transform himself into a successful businessman”.

We live in times where shocks to the economy have become more frequent (fig 1) ……and complexity and unknowns in business have grown manifold.

And every economic shock unleashes a slew of environmental & regulatory changes, unknowns and complexities necessitating several strategic, systemic and process changes within organizations. For example:

* today’s average automobile has more computer processing power than the first Apollo mission to moon
* Radio took 38 years to reach 50 million U.S. consumers, telephone took 25 years, mobile just ten years to reach over 500 millions in India
