A Management Makeover for India's Textile Firms
A new World Bank-Stanford study selected a set of textile factories in India for complimentary management makeovers to study the effects on profitability and efficiency. For co-author Nick Bloom, observing the chaos that reigned in the cotton weaving factories before the consultants arrived was a glimpse into a world without managers. It was also the culmination of an IRiSS seed grant for the groundbreaking research. For details, visit the Washington Post.
