By: Sekhsaria, NarotamPublication details: Gurugram HarperBusiness 2022Description: 331pISBN: 9789354890338Subject(s): LeadershipDDC classification: 658.4092 Summary: The Ambuja Story is a tale of grit, determination, honesty and integrity. For a cement company, it’s a unique case study that broke many stereotypes, such as cement production can’t be an environmental friendly activity, good cement can’t be cheaper and it’s difficult to market a product as boring as cement. Author’s vision for Ambuja wasn’t just limited to financial success; he undertook community development around all Ambuja plants to a whole new level. Ambuja’s work in women empowerment, skill development, health and education created new benchmarks for the industry long before corporate social responsibility became mandatory in India. The Ambuja Story provides a new perspective on business and life, inspiring the next generation of entrepreneurs to scale greater heights.
