This book is meant for all of us who are in any way connected to business, industry, or organisations.

Entrepreneurs and business-leaders have choices and alternatives. A decision to make – for their business to be an enterprise or become an Organisation. What is the significance? Ravi plays with pictures and illustrations to render a feisty, colourful narrative that pulls us to find out what is next. And then the voices emerge, a people viewpoint in the context of our own emerging future. This is more than a book… we need to explore, make new beginnings and act to design the future. We can Re-Enterprise.
Former MD and Global Business Leader of SHRM (Society for Human Resource Management), Ravi is now Chair Professor, Leadership Development at the Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS).
