Webinar Career Masterclass: The Role of Jugaad in Building Your Career

About the Webinar

Jugaad, the principle of frugal innovation, has become a popular concept for management and development professionals. “Hackathon” has even become the standard term for rapid prototyping and development. But when it comes to building a successful career, when should you turn from frugality to more in-depth effort? When does cutting corners become cutting yourself off from success?

Join us on Tuesday, August 31, 2021, at 9 PM IST (8:30 AM PDT / 11:30 AM EDT) for a career masterclass by T.N. Hari, Head of HR at BigBasket and author of “Saying No To Jugaad: The Making of Bigbasket.” Hari will give you insights into when and how to apply jugaad in your career - and when not to - including:

  • Setting priorities when building a successful career
  • Jugaad in start-up careers: creating opportunities and barriers
  • The role for jugaad in a corporate career
  • When to be frugal, and when to invest your resources

The live webinar will include a Q&A with Hari. (If you register and can’t make the live webinar, we will send you a link to the recording after the event.)
