“Dear Anil, your speech was clearly the talk of the CSLE for the entire next day. You accomplished precisely what we had hoped for: to shift the perception of our members with regards to their strategies for BRIC regions. You also advanced pragmatic wisdom for our crowd, particularly with what I considered the quote of the speech: Cut the chains and you become free, cut the roots and you die. I believe those words will be carried by our audience in perpetuity.
Again, we thank you so much for your fantastic contribution, for delivering a perfect presentation, for educating everyone of the realities of China and India emergence, and for making our CSLE event more special. “

”Anil, your session was very well received. The knowledge you conveyed in a short period of time was impressive. You made some very impactful observations about a US/European company pursuing the Indian market with current global products and services e.g. a solution in search of a problem without understanding the markets in India. This lead to a very stimulating discussion after you left. Thanks for leading a stimulating session. “
Executive Coach and Senior Consultant to CEO, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of analytical instruments
As a global leader on strategy and organization in emerging economies, Anil Gupta offers unparalleled insight into how businesses can take effective advantage of dynamic markets such as China and India. With clear delivery and a talent for distilling complex issues, Gupta’s presentations deal with the general topic of globalization and the needs of those seeking success in specific countries.
Gupta’s advice on the emerging “mega-markets” of China and India helps his audiences understand how these markets differ from the “hot new markets” of yesterday. China and India require different operating assumptions than Germany or Japan once did – but successfully leveraging these markets can help businesses achieve global dominance in their industries.
Gupta helps his listeners understand how to cultivate a global mindset, becoming “rule makers” rather than “rule takers.” Executed well, global presence can soon become a global competitive advantage. Gupta’s audiences leave equipped and inspired to make the global marketplace their own.
Global Strategy in the Age of China and India
The rise of China and India is a game-changing phenomenon. Gupta talks about why China and India are the only two countries in the world that simultaneously constitute four game-changing realities: mega-markets for almost every product and service, platforms to dramatically reduce a company′s global cost structure, platforms to significantly boost a company′s global technology and innovation base, and springboards for the emergence of new fearsome global competitors. He then outlines how companies can leverage the market and the resource opportunities presented by the China and India phenomenon to achieve global dominance within their particular industries.
Changing the Rules of the Global Game: Is Your Company A Rule Maker or A Rule Taker?
Gupta talks about why every company must cultivate a bias for changing the rules by which it plays the global game within its industry. He then shares the logic that companies can use to reinvent the rules of the game by rethinking answers to the three classic questions for every business: How can we dramatically redefine who our target customers are? How can we dramatically reinvent the value that we should be delivering to our customers? And, how can we dramatically redesign the end-to-end value chain architecture in order to create and deliver this value?
Building and Exploiting Global Presence:
The Quest for Global Dominance: Transforming Global Presence Into Global Competitive Advantage
Gupta talks about the key questions that business leaders must address in order to develop winning strategies to go global and to transform global presence into global advantage. He offers conceptual frameworks that executives can use to answer these questions and illustrates these frameworks with compelling examples.
Cultivating A Global Mindset
Individuals differ in how they sense and interpret the world around them. So do organizations. And, these differences matter. Gupta shares his insights about why far too many companies are blind to the ongoing transformation of the global economy and the real opportunities and challenges resulting from this transformation. He offers concrete guidelines that individuals and companies can use to develop a global mindset. The development of a global mindset requires not only an openness to and knowledge of diversity across cultures and markets but also the ability to integrate across this diversity.
Leveraging Synergies Across Businesses
Capturing synergies across businesses is one of the hardest tasks for most CEOs. Gupta shares insights from his research and consulting experience about why most companies talk incessantly about the benefits of synergy but find it very hard to actually realize these benefits. He talks about how companies can sidestep three common pitfalls in the pursuit of synergies: assuming that just because two businesses have something in common, there must be synergies; ignoring the possibility that alliances between independent companies may sometimes be more effective and efficient than internal coordination between peer business units; and, looking only at the potential benefits while ignoring the costs associated with trying to realize synergies.

Quest for Global Dominance: Transforming Global Presence into Global Competitive Advantage
Anil K. Gupta, Vijay Govindarajan, and Haiyan Wang are among the most distinguished experts in the field of globalization. In The Quest for Global Dominance they present the lessons from their twenty-year study of over two hundred corporations. They argue that, in order for a company to create and maintain its position as a globally dominant player, executives must ensure that their company leads its industry in the following four essential tasks:
- Identifying market opportunities worldwide and pursuing them by establishing the necessary presence in all key markets
- Converting global presence into global competitive advantage by identifying and developing the opportunities for value creation that global presence offers
- Cultivating a global mindset by viewing cultural and geographic diversity as an opportunity, not just a challenge
- Leveraging the rise of emerging markets especially China and India to transform the company′s growth prospects, global cost structure, and pace of innovation
Empiricism and Experience
This book offers a novel account of the relationship of experience to knowledge. The account builds on the intuitive idea that our ordinary perceptual judgments are not autonomous, that an interdependence obtains between our view of the world and our perceptual judgments. Anil Gupta shows in this important study that this interdependence is the key to a satisfactory account of experience. He uses tools from logic and the philosophy of language to argue that his account of experience makes available an attractive and feasible empiricism.
