'Gems Of India' – Case Study series

Dr. Prachee along with her team has developed the “Gems of India” case study series with the objective of studying and showcasing some of the exemplary infrastructure projects built in India, as well as inspiring stories of Indian business leaders and organizations, which have helped put India on the global map. We are proud to share that some of our leading case studies have been published in Harvard Business Review (HBR) and similar top case study outlets.
