Doing what is right: THE CRISIL STORY
This book tells the unique story of an intrepid company that made it big against all odds, relying on nothing other than its intellectual capital and the power of its vision. Founded in the regulated and stagnant Indian economy of the late 1980s, offering a credit rating service that had no takers, and without any real assets or capital, CRISIL seemed destined to fail. Instead, it became one of India’s most respected companies, redefining its vision from being India-focused to playing a quiet but critical role in global markets. This is a story of razor-sharp analytics, unshakeable values and sheer grit. It is also a story of leaders with very different styles, who brought it all together over a quarter of a century. A narrative that, above all, shows that doing well can go hand in hand with doing what is right.
The book has been included among Business World’s list of Bestsellers for the month of Jan 2013 and has been #9 on WH Smith’s Top Ten Business Publications.
