Leaders must keep their eyes and ears open for innovative ideas, whether it comes from internal sources including their own team members or outside, Tata Chemicals Managing Director R Mukundan said here today.
"The idea to launch 'besan' and other pulses related products by the Tatas has come from a retailer from Nagpur," Mukundan said at the National Leadership Conference on 'Leading and Managing Transformation', organised by Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) here.
A CII-EY study titled, "Succeeding in the VUCA Paradigm: Making Change Happen" was also unveiled at the conference.
Ganesh Natarajan, Chairman, Global Talent Track said innovation was taking place at different levels in different companies.
"Though companies like Apple and Tesla are known for their innovative achievements, retail major Amazon has made several innovations in the process of changing the retail space," Natarajan added.
