C.K. Prahalad

CKP is a Professor of Business Administration at the University of Michigan's Ross Business School. He specializes in corporate strategy and the role and value addition of top management in large diversified, multinational corporations. He, along with Gary Hamel, coined the term ' CORE COMPETENCE'. One of the first management gurus whose work I read..and, helped inspire me in a lot of ways!!

Some of his oft-quoted work..

'The Fortune At The Bottom Of The Pyramid', 2004
#1 Biz Book of 2004 at, Fast Company, The Economist
The Fortune At The Bottom Of The Pyramid advocates that the world’s most exciting, fastest-growing market is where you would least expect it: at the bottom of the pyramid. Collectively, the world’s billions of poor people have immense entrepreneurial capabilities and buying power. Companies have a genuine opportunity to commit their energy and resources to help the disadvantaged of the world, and Prahalad shows how it is being done – profitably.
