They were gluing, not sewing. They would put a cover on a hardback but not do anything with the hard case underneath. Nowadays, if you take a cover off, there is likely to be something interesting underneath it. Once upon a time, people bought books because they liked reading.
Now they download books because they like books. This helps to explain the reinvigoration of independent bookshops, which offer a more styled, or curated, experience.
Dec 09, Manish Khurana rated it really liked it. People rating this book 3 stars or below don't seem to have understood the essence of it. This isn't a typical business narrative. It's an attempt to convey the reader that how KB's grounded and unconventional approach made him really the father of modern retailing in India.
This book is a reflection of the author in terms of its simplicity. And I really liked how the book has regular interviews of his colleagues. Some reviewers have accused this book of being a PR stunt. That way every business People rating this book 3 stars or below don't seem to have understood the essence of it.
That way every business book is a PR stunt. What comes out of all such books is the way the company evolved to its current state. And essentially, every such company took some unconventional steps and went through a lot of transformations.
The only complaint I have to the author is that maybe this book was written too soon. Pantaloons is no longer a part of the Future Group. Thus, it would've been interesting to know his thoughts on how he felt while parting ways with a company that has played a phenomenal role in his success.
It is basic human nature that when someone home grown is on to something, his own people are the last to recognize him. This quote from this book is so apt in various situations Most people may not recognize the name 'Kishore Biyani' or the 'Future Retail', but I doubt if anyone has not heard about the 'Big Bazaar' or the 'Pantaloons' or the 'Central'.
Born in a middle class family, not satisfied with family business, went ahead on his own to revamp the retail market space in India.
Taking inspi It is basic human nature that when someone home grown is on to something, his own people are the last to recognize him. Taking inspiration from the likes of Sam Walton, Kishore is on the mission on capture every rupee an Indian spends.
From building shopping malls, developing consumer brands to selling insurance, he is getting into every consumer business. This book gives an insight into how an average Indian shops, how indian business work, and how to take ideas from ones immediate environment to build something which suits or caters to the needs of the majority.
Sep 19, Pallavi Kamat rated it liked it. Good insights into the retail industry 10 years back when this book was written. Malls were looked at as the next best thing then; quite a few malls are being wound up now.
Kishore Biyani definitely revolutionised retail in India; he ensured even the commonest woman entered malls via quality goods at affordable prices. Jan 28, Ashutosh Mundhada rated it really liked it. Insightful into the Kishore Biyanis way of doing business.
As KB had mentioned that he's worked a lot on brand building, at times the books tilts a bit on that side and seems as a marketing channel for the business.
More roadblocks, failures and learnings could be shared in the book. Jun 03, Rohon rated it really liked it. Slightly repetitive but much refreshing read on managerial thought process - less process orientation, hierarchy, review and analysis- more of imagination, speed, observation and intuition. Full of optimism and very much Indian!
Jul 17, Shivang Nagaria rated it liked it Shelves: A nice business book but to much praises of Kishore Biyani. Feb 18, Yatri mehta rated it really liked it. A great book who changed the market of india must read.
Oct 10, Monalisa Sharma rated it liked it. Its a kind of autobiography and story of organisation as well. Average rating for this book as so many compliments of different learned person on Kishore Biyani makes it boring at some sections. Jun 06, NakulJain rated it really liked it.
Giant Killer in Retail. Setup and progress of Biyani group. Goosebumps event of Big Bazaar and progress. Jul 25, Dharmesh rated it really liked it. It is not just a story of the Future Group but also how the retail sector evolved in India post economic liberalisation. Dec 20, Imran rated it it was ok. Similar to Sam Walton's "Made in America", which is a better read Mar 02, Samuel Kumar rated it really liked it. A leader who stood the ground to make it successful by indigenised thinking!
May 23, Arijit rated it really liked it. Though the book was not a smooth ride as is the case always with non-fiction stuff, yet it would not bore you too much given the transcripts and real life scenarios expressed in the form of stories by people involved with Pantaloons and other group companies of Future group like Central,Big Bazaar to name a few.
The book has its own underlying connotations,sometimes giving advice and at other times detailing the qualities of Kishore Biyani who rose from a common baniya to become one of the top en Though the book was not a smooth ride as is the case always with non-fiction stuff, yet it would not bore you too much given the transcripts and real life scenarios expressed in the form of stories by people involved with Pantaloons and other group companies of Future group like Central,Big Bazaar to name a few.
The book has its own underlying connotations,sometimes giving advice and at other times detailing the qualities of Kishore Biyani who rose from a common baniya to become one of the top entrepreneurs in India. Kishore in his book talks much about 'Re-write rules and retain values'.
You have to digest the book to understand thoroughly to understand the inner meaning of it and how he was able to achieve the same. First and foremost, he understood the people before trying to sell the goods to them. For ex, he was against the idea of making plush interiors and shiny environment inside Big Bazaars as the customers might not enter thinking everything is too expensive.
The book talks in a colloquial language.
It epitomizes the problems faced by him trying to adventure out of his family business to try something new and the hardships faced overcoming which taught him many a lesson. It talks about the chaotic Indian shopping habits and how to entice people of all strata to spend their disposable income in his company.
The book is filled with excerpts from those people involved with Kishore Biyani right from family members to top executives who were given a free run to make decisive actions and never to scoff even if the decision turned against. He believed in the habit of learning and un-learning and made others believed in it too. Few of the lines to quote -" Never be afraid of making a mistake and even if made one, get out of it fast and never put bad money after good money" sums it up.
Later in the book he talks about Design thinking to keep ahead of the competition and how Design thinking will play an important role in it.
He says rather than to react to the changes in fashion and making changes in their retail plans after that, they ought to make the change which would drive the changes in modern fashion. This will save time and keep them ahead of the rivals.
He drives home the message of innovation. In all, the book has come from one of those people who rose from being a common man to re-define the way people shop. Modern retailing was first introduced by him and later many others followed. He understood people and that helped him to in good stead. Overall its a good book to read!! Oct 19, Kanti Brahma rated it liked it. Big bazaar, Pantaloons and Central must have attracted every Indian consumer through its product diversity and competitive pricing.
But the how a man managed to establish modern retail in India where retailing was largely disorganised and lacked any success story to imitate?
