The Modern Mughal Mentality transforms hardships and difficulties into success stories by introducing the Jugaad Management Principle Business Model, which can be applied to any business, anywhere.
For the purpose of this book, the term Jugaad will be defined as “obtaining your objectives by maximizing resources through thinking out of the box.”
Following this new business model will inspire all types of companies around the world, no matter how big or small, to create innovative mentalities, products, and strategies. The Modern Mughal Mentality reveals ways in which companies everywhere can benefit from this new business model.
It also reveals ways in which western companies can learn to be successful in India. Executives of multi-national corporations, government officials, and even American and global small business owners who have no plans to do business in India will benefit from the innovative and revolutionary approach to maximizing resources that The Modern Mughal Mentality delivers.

“I have read Dr. Afshan Naheed Hashmi’s book “The Modern Mughal Mentality-New Strategies to Succeed in India and the Global Marketplace”, and found it thought-provoking. The Mughals ruled vast territories in India for several hundred years. It required stratagem for a small minority to assert their power and influence. Jugaad Management Principle i.e. obtaining objectives by maximizing resources, through thinking out of the box, has been emphasized. I think Jugaad also implies “ability to network”. In India, business success depends on negotiating obstacles and employment of “Jugaad” is essential. This book is recommended to all those who want to be successful in business in India.”
