Mumbai, 2020: Rajesh Srivastava, the former president of J.K. Helene Curtis, has launched his first book, “The New Rules of Business.” It was published by Penguin India and launched by Mr.D Shivakumar, Group Executive President, Corporate Strategy & Business Development; Aditya Birla Group confirmed the team to Prittle Prattle News via a press release.
The book unfolds the mysteries of new ways of doing business adopted by new-age companies, like Uber and Ola, Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Hot Star, Amazon, and Flipkart, among others. They are dismantling the “old rules” of business & installing “new rules.” The book has received a rousing response. It has gone in for a reprint. If companies continue using ‘old’ rules, then it would be equivalent to using rotatory phones in an era of smartphones. They run the risk of becoming irrelevant.
Compellingly written, with several anecdotes, this is a gripping book full of incredible insights. Armed with them, readers can feel inspired & confident to take on business challenges and come up trumps!
