Society is changing and
people are demanding faster and better quality services from their
government. At the same time, governments are facing severe resource
constraint on account of a number of factors. Many government
departments see this challenge as an opportunity to revolutionize
the way they function. A strong Networking system can bring a solid
solution to this.
They are wanting to devise strategies that increase the speed of
their decision-making and operations. They are interested in
creating new organisation structures that are responsive to their
customers and adapt well with the changes in the socio-economic
environment. They are keen on making optimal utilisation of their
resources. As a Networking, Research, Management and Consulting Not
for profit oraganisation, LEAD INDIA helps the government
departments in improving their performance in a number of ways. We
conduct research studies to get an insight into the needs and
aspirations of their customers. Based on the findings, we help the
departments in devising appropriate strategies and interventions to
fulfil the needs of their customers. We advise them on designing
efficient organisation structures and systems to implement these
strategies. All these components are compiled in the form of a
Project Implementation Plan (PIP) which will be then presented
before the funding agencies like World Bank, USAID, etc.
After a Project is approved and the department starts implementing
it, we offer our services for regular monitoring of the progress of
its implementation. Sometimes, we are also involved in training the
project functionaries to ensure its proper implementation. For some
projects, we are also required to conduct mid-term and end-term
evaluation studies to measure their net impact.
LEAD INDIA was founded in 1991 as Action for International
Innovations, with an idea to study the application of modern NGO
related management and research tools & techniques in the
functioning and relationship maintaining of Funding and government
organisations aimed at its all-round enhancement. It was promoted by
an Eminent Educationalist and Advocate of Gujarat High Court,
Ahmedabad whose vision was to establish a research & consulting
enterprise, which runs purely on the merits and utility of its work
and to assist the organisations who work to uplift the marginalised
sections of the society. LEAD INDIA was set up with no grant-in-aid
or funding from any government body or international agency.
As a well thought-out service strategy, the promoters decided to
specialize in working with Government organisations. They started
from the country's largest state, Bihar. Rather than aiming at any
rapid expansion, the initial years were spent in getting an in-depth
understanding of the working of government organisations. The intent
was to be able to offer customized and apt management advice which
was truly beneficial to the clients. The strategy has paid off and
today, LEAD INDIA is going to be widely acknowledged as the pioneer
and the leader in the segment of consulting with the Government
The promoters had realized that with the opening up of the economy
and the information revolution, the people would start demanding
more efficient systems in Government at all levels. This would
create a plethora of opportunities for introducing modern management
techniques in Government systems. They could not have been more
right. The demand for our services is growing by leaps and bounds,
day by day. Their vision continues to inspire us to remain focused
on the Government clients.
In the year 2012, LEAD INDIA was incorporated as a company and
rechristened as LEAD INDIA Foundation. However, for quite a few of
our clients in the Government, we are still empanelled as Lead India
Although serving the clients with passion and empathy is at the core
of our culture, yet we devote an equal amount of our energy to make
LEAD INDIA a great place to work.
A place where you trust the people you work for. We not only
do what we say, quite often we walk the extra mile to uphold the
trust of our people.
A place where you have pride in what you do. One may notice
that we have not used the phrase— "....... fun in what you do". Fun
is much easier to get than pride which demands a heavy price. One
has to work really hard and long to produce a work of quality within
a limited time-frame. Our culture demands each work to be the best
and not just one of the best in its category.
A place where you enjoy the people you work with. Each one of
us is responsive to the needs of others and focused on
relationships. We respect the diversity of opinions and trust each
Although the staff members at LEAD INDIA care very much about each
other, yet the organization fosters an element of independence in
its work culture. In fact, one has the privilege to work at LEAD
INDIA with a great deal of freedom. None interferes in your work
unless you want. Nobody watches you over your shoulders constantly.
One is free to do anything within the institutional norms as long as
it serves the best interests of the client.
At LEAD INDIA, client service means exceeding expectations, giving
more than what is normally expected. It takes sheer hard work to
first have an understanding of the client needs & constraints and
then to work towards developing a pragmatic and doable solution to
LEAD INDIA is distinguished by four core values, the essential and
enduring tenets of our culture. At the very heart of all our
actions, these shaped LEAD INDIA into what it is today and will
continue to guide all our endeavours in the future.
Absolute Transparency: In how many recruitment
advertisements, do we find the salary component clearly spelt out?
We at LEAD INDIA do all our advertisements with the compensation
part displayed upfront. Besides, we painstakingly ensure that all
our actions and decisions are totally transparent to all the
Permanent Relationships: We believe in building permanent
relationships both with our clients as well as with our own people.
We abhor fair-weather friends and seek out only those who we are
sure would stay with us through thick and thin.
Honour before Money: Honour of LEAD INDIA and each one of our
people is more important than anything else in the world. Honour of
the company and its people is always maintained, even if it means
losing out a major business. We are not money minded. Our aim is to
lead a dignified life, a life worthy of living.
Freedom & Self Discipline: At LEAD INDIA, each one of us is
treated as a mature person and given full freedom to plan one's
activities. Seniors are not constantly watching over our shoulders.
Rather, each one of us is expected to be self-disciplined. Guidance
of the seniors is readily available, but they don't unnecessarily
interfere in our work.
