It felt like i was reading the story of my life. For anyone switching jobs whilst changing countries and therefore culture this book carries a lot of lessons in it. Its equally entertaining for the thrill it has to offer. It cannot be more ubiquitous for all professionals seeking to make the most of the global culture organisations have to offer. Great read and highly recommended. – Amazon Review
“(Not So) Corporate Raj” is both a critique of big corporate culture, as well as an in-depth look at the theories behind consumer goods business management.
It tells the tale of middle-aged Indian sales whiz Raj Khan, who makes a career move from his local South Asian branch of a large multinational corporation to the company’s London headquarters. As he struggles through the change in culture and more rigid business practices, he becomes a pariah within the organisation and eventually embraces an undesirable personal transformation.
Is he the one in the wrong, or is it the entire corporate culture that needs fixing? Author Arij Jamil cleverly delivers no easy answers, instead examining the pluses and minuses of the famous rules of corporate business management with a laser eye but no judgment. Simultaneously a teaching textbook and an exciting psychological thriller,
“(Not So) Corporate Raj” will be just the ticket for fans of the growing field of “non-fiction novels” such as “The Phoenix Project” and others.
